this is the conversion that you start with: 0.001 L= 1 m^3 or 1 L= 0.001 m^3

Put these conversions into scientific notation making 0.001L=10^6 L because you moved the decimal point 6 places to the right making it 1000 L. it is the same for the other 0.001m^3= 10^6 m^3

So these are the conversions in scientific notation:
10^6 L= 1 m^3 or 1 L= 10^6 m^3

Say you have a glass cube that is
1 m x 1 m x 1 m (1 m^3) it will take 1000 (10^6) liters to fill it

Scientific notation helps with other problems like this too!

Hope this helps you out!
