Okay, I just ate supper, but now I'm back. 1 CC is 1 ml, so 1000 ml = 1000 cubic centimeters. A CC is about the size of a sugar cube.
The 196 comes from 14 times 14 because pi r squared is area of a circle. So I divided 1000 milliliters (1 liter) by the circle area to get the height. Units: cm cubed divided by cm squared is cm 3-D (cubed) divided by 2-D slice (the circle area) = height of cylinder.

Imagine for a moment that even an earthworm may possess a love of self and a love of others.
