# How to convert volume to an area?

### How to convert volume to an area?

If I have 1 Litre of water and I spill it on the floor, what would its area be?

Good afternoon!

$$1L = 1 cm^3$$

So, to discover the 'area', you have to fix the thickness of the 'spilt milk' Another idea is: If you have a room with 3m x 3m = 300cm x 300cm, you can calc the area... and discover the thickness, right?
Like this:
$$V=abc\\\\ 1=300\cdot 300\cdot h\\\\ h=\dfrac{1}{90\,000}\approx 1,1\times 10^{-5}cm=1,1\times 10^{-4}=1,1\times 10^{-1}\mu m$$

I hope I have helped!

One fix : 1 l$$\ne$$1 $$cm^{3}$$ 1 l=1 liter=1 $$dm^{3}$$

You were right, my mistake!

$$1L = 1 dm^3$$

So, to discover the 'area', you have to fix the thickness of the 'spilt milk' Another idea is: If you have a room with 3m x 3m = 30dm x 30dm, you can calc the area... and discover the thickness, right?
Like this:
$$V=abc\\\\ 1=30\cdot 30\cdot h\\\\ h=\dfrac{1}{900}\approx 1,1\times 10^{-3}dm=1,1\times 10^{-4}m=1,1\times 10^{-1}mm=110\mu m$$

Now it's right!
