How is volume measured? (Continued)

Here's part of the beauty of the metric system: 

1 milliliter of liquid occupies a volume of 1 cm³ 

Therefore, both of these units (mL and cm³) can be used to express the same volume of liquids. And the mass of 1 mL or 1 cm³ of water is 1 gram! 

See how it all fits together?

Remember, all metric prefixes for grams also apply to meters and liters:
