It's a measurement of volume (as in capacity) and can be described as a cube where each side is 1cm long. If you image a die (as in what you roll in Monopoly) that is 1 cm tall, 1cm long, 1 cm wide, then that die's volume is 1 cubic cm.

What is a Decimetre?

A decimetre is a unit of measurement and it is used to define a linear dimension. A linear dimension is a measurement taken in a single dimension or direction.

The 'deci' prefix denotes a portion equal to one tenth^ of the whole [metre]. One deci~metre is therefore equal to one tenth of one metre. This can be represented as either 0.1m or, 10cm [ten centimetres].

What is meant by the term Cubic?

The cubic measurement of an object is also known as its 'volume', or V. Three opposed linear dimensions [as described above] are required in order to calculate a volume. Typically, these three linear dimensions are assigned the names: length; width and height [l, w & h].

The relationship between these measurements is explained by the following equation:

V [m3] = l [m] x w [m] x h [m]


^ Point of interest: Whilst the term 'Decimated' is often used nowadays to refer to a relatively significant reduction [of say force or capability] the term originated from the splitting up of groups of soldiers into ten, equal 'sub-groups'.
