How to convert

1 gill (gi) = 0.000118294 kiloliter (kl). Gill (gi) is a unit of Volume used in Cooking system. Kiloliter (kl) is a unit of Volume used in Metric system.

Gills: A Unit of Volume

Gills are a unit of volume that are used to measure liquids, such as water, milk, oil, wine, etc. They are also used to measure some dry goods, such as grains, fruits, nuts, etc. They are different from cups, which are a smaller unit of volume. They are also different from liters, which are a larger unit of volume. They are also different from barrel of oil equivalent (BOE), which is a unit of energy based on the approximate energy released by burning one barrel of crude oil.

Definition of Gills

A gill is equal to one fourth of a pint in both the imperial and US customary systems of measurement. It is equivalent to 5 fluid ounces or 142.065 milliliters in the metric system.

History of Gills

The origin of the term gill as a unit of measure is uncertain, but it may have derived from the Old French word gille, which means a measure for wine or beer. Gills have been used since ancient times to store and transport various liquids and dry goods. The size and shape of gills varied depending on the type and quantity of the goods, the availability of materials, and the customs of different regions and countries.

The use of gills as a unit of measure dates back to the medieval times, when the European system of measurement was established. The standard size of these gills was based on the wine gallon, which was originally defined as the volume of eight pounds of wine at 62 °F. The gill was convenient for measuring and dividing smaller amounts of liquids and dry goods.

The use of gills as a unit of measure continued until the 20th century, when the metric system of measurement was adopted in most countries. The gill was gradually replaced by units such as liters, grams, etc. However, some countries and regions still use gills for certain types of liquids and dry goods, especially in the United Kingdom and Ireland and some Commonwealth nations.

How to Convert Gills

To convert gills to other units of volume, one can use the following formulas:

  • To convert UK gills to liters: multiply by 0.142

  • To convert UK gills to cubic inches: multiply by 8.669

  • To convert UK gills to fluid ounces: multiply by 5

  • To convert UK gills to US liquid pints: multiply by 0.118

  • To convert UK gills to BOE: divide by 140

  • To convert US liquid gills to liters: multiply by 0.118

  • To convert US liquid gills to cubic inches: multiply by 7.219

  • To convert US liquid gills to fluid ounces: multiply by 4

  • To convert US liquid gills to UK pints: multiply by 0.211

  • To convert US liquid gills to BOE: divide by 150

Where Gills are Used

Gills are mainly used in some countries and regions that use the imperial system or the US customary system of measurement. They are often used for measuring and adding liquids such as water, milk, oil, wine, etc., and dry goods such as grains, fruits, nuts, etc., to recipes.

In some countries that use the metric system of measurement, such as Canada and Australia, gills are not commonly used or recognized. Instead, they use units such as liters, grams, etc.

Example Conversions of Gills to Other Units

Here are some examples of converting gills to other units of volume:

  • 1 UK gill = 0.142 liters

  • 2 UK gills = 17.338 cubic inches

  • 3 UK gills = 15 fluid ounces

  • 4 UK gills = 0.473 US liquid pints

  • 5 UK gills = 0.036 BOE

  • 1 US liquid gill = 0.118 liters

  • 2 US liquid gills = 14.438 cubic inches

  • 3 US liquid gills = 12 fluid ounces

  • 4 US liquid gills = 0.845 UK pints

  • 5 US liquid gills = 0.033 BOE.

The US gill, defined as 118.29411825 milliliters = 1/32 US liquid gallon.

Kiloliters - A Unit of Volume

Definition of the Kiloliter

A kiloliter (symbol kl or kL) is a unit of volume that corresponds to one thousand liters (1000 liters) or one cubic meter (1 m3). It is a unit of volume in the metric system, which is based on the meter as the base unit of length.

One kiloliter is equal to 0.001 cubic meters, 61023.744 cubic inches, or 264.172 gallons.

History of the Kiloliter

The kiloliter is derived from the liter, which is a unit of volume that was introduced in France in 1795 as part of the metric system. The liter was defined as one cubic decimeter (0.1 meter) in length, width, and height. The liter was later redefined as the volume of one kilogram of pure water at its maximum density and standard atmospheric pressure. The current definition of the liter, adopted in 1964, is based on the cubic meter, which is defined as the volume of a cube with sides of one meter in length.

The kiloliter was first used as a unit of volume for measuring large amounts of liquids and gases, such as water, milk, juice, oil, fuel, air, and oxygen. The kiloliter was also used for measuring some solids, such as sugar, salt, and flour. The kiloliter was adopted as a standard unit of measure in many countries that use the metric system, such as France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and Sweden.

How to Convert Kiloliters

To convert kiloliters to other units of volume, you need to multiply or divide by the appropriate conversion factor. Here are some common conversion factors and examples:

  • To convert kiloliters to cubic meters, multiply by 0.001.
    • Example: 2 kl × 0.001 = 0.002 m3
  • To convert kiloliters to cubic inches, multiply by 61023.744.
    • Example: 2 kl × 61023.744 = 122047.488 in3
  • To convert kiloliters to milliliters or liters, multiply by 1000000 or 1000 respectively.
    • Example: 2 kl × 1000000 = 2000000 mL or 2 kl × 1000 = 2000 L
  • To convert kiloliters to gallons (US liquid), multiply by 264.172.
    • Example: 2 kl × 264.172 = 528.344 gal
  • To convert kiloliters to bushels (US), multiply by 28.37825.
    • Example: 2 kl × 28.37825 = 56.7565 bu
  • To convert kiloliters to barrels (oil), multiply by 6.28981.
    • Example: 2 kl × 6.28981 = 12.57962 bbl

To convert other units of volume to kiloliters, you need to divide by the appropriate conversion factor. Here are some common conversion factors and examples:

  • To convert cubic meters to kiloliters, divide by 0.001.
    • Example: 0.002 m3 ÷ 0.001 = 2 kl
  • To convert cubic inches to kiloliters, divide by 61023.744.
    • Example: 122047.488 in3 ÷ 61023.744 = 2 kl
  • To convert milliliters or liters to kiloliters, divide by 1000000 or 1000 respectively.
    • Example: 2000000 mL ÷ 1000000 = 2 kl or 2000 L ÷ 1000 = 2 kl
  • To convert gallons (US liquid) to kiloliters, divide by 264.172.
    • Example: 528.344 gal ÷ 264.172 = 2 kl
  • To convert bushels (US) to kiloliters, divide by 28.37825.
    • Example: 56.7565 bu ÷ 28.37825 = 2 kl
  • To convert barrels (oil) to kiloliters, divide by 6.28981.
    • Example: 12.57962 bbl ÷ 6.28981 = 2 kl
