The pages linked in the right-hand column contain lists of volumes that are of the same order of magnitude (power of ten). Rows in the table represent increasing powers of a thousand. (Note: dam³ and hm³ stand for cubic decametre and cubic hectometre respectively. The terms in the left-hand column are common terminology.)
