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

  • 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 Inches - A Unit of Volume

Definition of the Cubic Inch

A cubic inch (symbol in3 or cu in) is a unit of volume in the imperial and US customary (non-metric) units systems. It is the volume of a cube with each of its three dimensions (length, width, and height) being one inch (0.0254 meter) in length.

One cubic inch is equal to 0.000578704 cubic feet, 0.037037 cubic yards, or 0.016387064 liters.

History of the Cubic Inch

The cubic inch is derived from the inch, which is an ancient unit of length that was based on the length of a human thumb. The inch was originally divided into 12 lines, and later into 16 digits or 4 barleycorns. The inch was used in many different systems of measurement, such as the Roman, Anglo-Saxon, English, and Scottish systems. The inch was standardized by King Edward II of England in 1324 as the length of three barleycorns laid end to end. The current definition of the inch, adopted in 1959, is based on the international yard, which is defined as 0.9144 meter.

The cubic inch was first used as a unit of volume for measuring solid objects in England in the 14th century. It was also used for measuring other materials and substances, such as wood, stone, metal, water, and air. The cubic inch was adopted as a standard unit of measure in the imperial system in 1824, along with other units such as the gallon, the bushel, and the barrel. The cubic inch was also used in the US customary system, which is similar but not identical to the imperial system. The cubic inch is still widely used today for various purposes, such as engineering, commerce, and everyday life.
