## How to convert

1 liter (l) = 0.008386414 barrel liquid (bbl liquid). Liter (l) is a unit of Volume used in Metric system. Barrel Liquid (bbl liquid) is a unit of Volume used in Standard system.

## Definition of the Liter

A liter (international spelling) or liter (American English spelling) (SI symbols L and l) is a unit of volume that is used in the metric system. It is defined as the volume of a cube with sides of 10 centimeters (0.1 meter) in length.

One liter is equal to 1000 cubic centimeters, 0.001 cubic meters, or 1 cubic decimeter.

## History of the Liter

The liter is derived from the litron, which was an old French unit of volume that was based on the Greek unit of weight called the litra. The litron was equal to about 0.831 liters. The word liter was first used in 1795 by the French chemist Antoine Lavoisier as a unit of volume for liquids and gases. The liter was originally defined as the volume of one kilogram of pure water at 4 °C and standard atmospheric pressure.

The liter was later redefined several times based on different physical standards, such as a platinum-iridium cylinder and a wavelength of light. The current definition of the liter, adopted in 1964, is based on the cubic meter, which is the SI unit of volume. The liter is not an SI unit, but it is accepted by the CGPM (the standards body that defines the SI) for use with the SI.

## How to Convert Liters

To convert liters 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 liters to cubic centimeters, multiply by 1000.
• Example: 2 L x 1000 = 2000 cm3
• To convert liters to cubic meters, multiply by 0.001.
• Example: 2 L x 0.001 = 0.002 m3
• To convert liters to cubic decimeters, multiply by 1.
• Example: 2 L x 1 = 2 dm3
• To convert liters to gallons (US liquid), multiply by 0.264.
• Example: 2 L x 0.264 = 0.528 gal
• To convert liters to bushels (US), multiply by 0.037.
• Example: 2 L x 0.037 = 0.074 bu
• To convert liters to barrels (oil), multiply by 0.0063.
• Example: 2 L x 0.0063 = 0.0126 bbl

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

• To convert cubic centimeters to liters, divide by 1000.
• Example: 2000 cm3 / 1000 = 2 L
• To convert cubic meters to liters, divide by 0.001.
• Example: 0.002 m3 / 0.001 = 2 L
• To convert cubic decimeters to liters, divide by 1.
• Example: 2 dm3 / 1 = 2 L
• To convert gallons (US liquid) to liters, divide by 0.264.
• Example: 0.528 gal / 0.264 = 2 L
• To convert bushels (US) to liters, divide by 0.037.
• Example: 0.074 bu / 0.037 = 2 L
• To convert barrels (oil) to liters, divide by 0.0063.
• Example: 0.0126 bbl / 0.0063 = 2 L

## Where Liters are Used

Liters are used for measuring various materials and substances in different countries and applications.

Some examples are:

• In most countries that use the metric system, liters are used for measuring liquids and gases, such as water, milk, juice, soda, beer, wine, oil, fuel, air, and oxygen.
• In some countries that use the imperial system, such as the United States and Canada, liters are used for measuring some liquids and gases, such as soft drinks, bottled water, milk, and propane.
• In the European Union, liters are used for measuring fuel consumption and carbon dioxide emissions of vehicles.
• In the medical industry, liters are used for measuring blood volume, urine output, and intravenous fluid administration.
• In the scientific industry, liters are used for measuring chemical solutions, reactions, and concentrations.

## Example Conversions of Liters to Other Units

Here are some example conversions of liters to other units of volume:

• 1 L = 1000 cm3
• 1 L = 0.001 m3
• 1 L = 1 dm3
• 1 L = 0.264 gal
• 1 L = 0.037 bu
• 1 L = 0.0063 bbl
• 1 L = 0.001 kL

## Definition of the Liquid Barrel

A liquid barrel (symbol bbl or bl) is a unit of volume that corresponds to the volume of a cylindrical container with a standard size and shape. The exact definition of a liquid barrel varies depending on what is being measured and where. In general, a liquid barrel is equivalent to 31.5 US gallons (26 imperial gallons or 119 liters) or half a hogshead. However, there are different types of liquid barrels for different liquids, such as oil, beer, wine, and water.

One liquid barrel is equal to 0.119 cubic meters, 7276.5 cubic inches, or 0.0298 cubic yards.

## History of the Liquid Barrel

The liquid barrel is derived from the barrel, which is a wooden container that was used for storing and transporting various goods since ancient times. The barrel was originally made from wooden staves held together by metal hoops, and had a standard size and shape that varied by region and product. The word barrel comes from the Latin barra, meaning bar or rod.

The liquid barrel was first used as a unit of volume for measuring liquids, such as wine, beer, oil, water, and vinegar. The liquid barrel was also used for measuring some solids, such as salt, flour, and fish. The liquid barrel was adopted as a standard unit of measure in many countries that use the imperial system or the US customary system, such as the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada, and Australia.

## How to Convert Liquid Barrels

To convert liquid barrels 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 liquid barrels to cubic meters, multiply by 0.119.
• Example: 2 bbl × 0.119 = 0.238 m3
• To convert liquid barrels to cubic inches, multiply by 7276.5.
• Example: 2 bbl × 7276.5 = 14553 in3
• To convert liquid barrels to milliliters or liters, multiply by 119000 or 119 respectively.
• Example: 2 bbl × 119000 = 238000 mL or 2 bbl × 119 = 238 L
• To convert liquid barrels to gallons (US liquid), multiply by 31.5.
• Example: 2 bbl × 31.5 = 63 gal
