1 liter of water is equal to 1000 cubic centimeters, so you need a base*height that equals 1000 cubic centimeters. Since water will fill the entire bottom of the cube first we know the base is the two sides times each other (100*100). This equals 10,000 so the height must be 0.1 centimeters to give a total of 1000 cubic centimeters.
