# Writing Meters Liters And Grams Answer Key.14

The base units of length and volume are linked in the metric system. By definition, aliter is equal to the volume of a cube exactly 10 cm tall, 10 cm long, and 10 cm wide.Because the volume of this cube is 1000 cubic centimeters and a liter contains 1000milliliters, 1 milliliter is equivalent to 1 cubic centimeter.

The numerical value may be written as a floating point decimal, for example 0.00314159, or in scientific notation as either 3.14159E-3 (as in FORTRAN) or 3.14159*10^-3 (with * signifying multiplication, and ^ signifying exponentiation; note in using the FORTRAN-like notation, you must use capital "E" and not small "e"). In place of a specific number for the numerical part of an answer, you may also use algebraic expressions. For example, (6+4)/2 is the same as writing 5. To see the syntax required for such expressions, as well as to see which special functions and numerical constants are recognized, see the section on Available_Functions. Note that trigonometric functions assume the argument is expressed in radians and not degrees.

Units need to come at the end of the answer blank . If MathQuill (the vertical math pallet on the side of the page) is being used then the unit should be preceded by a double quote -- e.g. 9.81 "m/s^2 which invokes text mode (tT) for the units. This prevents MathQuill from rewriting the units in two dimensional typeset form. Before MathQuill was in use the units had to be preceded by a space (in most cases).
