Cubic meters are a unit of volume, and kilograms are a unit of mass. Cubic meters can only be converted to kilograms if the density of a substance is known. If density is known, then multiplying the number of cubic meter... More » Math Arithmetic

Cubic meters, which measure volume, are converted to tons, which measure mass, by multiplying the number of cubic meters of a substance by its density in units of cubic meters per ton. Density is a physical property defi... More » Science Measurements

One cubic meter of soil weighs between 1.2 and 1.7 metric tonnes, or between 1,200 and 1,700 kilograms. These metric figures convert to between 2,645 and 3,747 pounds, or between 2.6 tons and 3.7 tons, per cubic meter. L... More » Science Measurements

Tonnage, a measurement of mass, is not directly converted to cubic yards, a measurement of volume. They are related, however; mass is equal to the volume of a material multiplied by its density. More » Science Measurements

Air density is the mass of air per unit of volume it occupies, and it is expressed in kilograms per cubic meter when using the metric system. In the free atmosphere, air density decreases when temperature increases or wh... More » Science Measurements

A kilogram is a unit of mass and a liter is a unit of volume, so there is no direct rate of conversion. If you know the density of a substance, you can make the conversion from kilograms to liters for that substance. More » Science Measurements
