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

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

Cubic Centimeters - A Unit of Volume

Definition of the Cubic Centimeter

A cubic centimeter (symbol cm3 or cc) is a commonly used unit of volume that corresponds to the volume of a cube with sides of 1 centimeter (0.01 meter) in length. It is also equivalent to 1 milliliter, which is a unit of volume in the metric system.

One cubic centimeter is equal to 0.000001 cubic meters, 0.06102374 cubic inches, or 0.000264172 gallons.

History of the Cubic Centimeter

The cubic centimeter is derived from the centimeter, which is a unit of length that was introduced in France in 1795 as part of the metric system. The centimeter was defined as one hundredth of a meter, which is the base unit of length in the metric system. The meter was originally defined as one ten-millionth of the distance from the equator to the North Pole along a meridian, but later redefined based on various physical standards, such as a platinum-iridium bar and a wavelength of light. The current definition of the meter, adopted in 1983, is based on the speed of light in vacuum.

The cubic centimeter was first used as a unit of volume for measuring liquids and gases, such as water, milk, juice, oil, air, and oxygen. The cubic centimeter was also used for measuring some solids, such as sugar, salt, and flour. The cubic centimeter 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 Cubic Centimeters

To convert cubic centimeters 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 cubic centimeters to cubic meters, multiply by 0.000001.

  • To convert cubic centimeters to cubic inches, multiply by 0.06102374.
    • Example: 2 cm3 × 0.06102374 = 0.12204748 in3
  • To convert cubic centimeters to milliliters or liters, multiply by 1 or divide by 1000 respectively.
    • Example: 2 cm3 × 1 = 2 mL or 2 cm3 ÷ 1000 = 0.002 L
  • To convert cubic centimeters to gallons (US liquid), multiply by 0.000264172.
    • Example: 2 cm3 × 0.000264172 = 0.000528344 gal
