Liters - A Unit of Volume

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

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

Centiliters - A Unit of Volume

Definition of the Centiliter

A centiliter (international spelling) or centiliter (American English spelling) (SI symbols cL or cl) is a unit of volume that is used in the metric system. It is defined as one hundredth of a liter, or the volume of a cube with sides of 1 centimeter (0.01 meter) in length.

One centiliter is equal to 10 cubic centimeters, 0.00001 cubic meters, or 0.01 cubic decimeters.

History of the Centiliter

The centiliter is derived from the liter, which is a unit of volume that was first used by the French chemist Antoine Lavoisier in 1795 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.

The centiliter was introduced as a subunit of the liter in the metric system in 1795, along with other decimal subunits such as the deciliter and the milliliter. The centiliter was used for measuring small volumes of liquids and gases, such as wine, beer, milk, oil, and air. The centiliter was also used for measuring some solids, such as sugar, flour, and salt. The centiliter was adopted as a standard unit of measure in many countries that use the metric system, such as France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and Sweden.
