The examples in the book seems vague with no explanations. [color=#0000FF]If the displacement (size) of a motorcycle engine is $1500 cm^3$, which of the following equivalencies is incorrect?[/color] $V=1500 mL$ $V= 1.500 L$ $V= 1.5 * 10^-^3 m^3$ $V= 15.00 m^3$[color=#FF0080] <-- I know this is the answer but I don't understand this? [/color] both $V= 1500 mL$ and $V= 15.00 m^3$
