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

Definition of the Ounce

The ounce is defined differently in different systems of measurement. The most common ounce is the international avoirdupois ounce, which is equal to 28.349523125 grams or 437.5 grains. This is the ounce that is used for most purposes, such as measuring food, postal items, fabric, paper and boxing gloves. The avoirdupois ounce is one-sixteenth of an avoirdupois pound, which is defined as 7000 grains.

Another ounce is the international troy ounce, which is equal to 31.1034768 grams or 480 grains. This is the ounce that is used for measuring precious metals and gems, such as gold, silver, platinum and diamonds. The troy ounce is one-twelfth of a troy pound, which is defined as 5760 grains.

A third ounce is the apothecaries’ ounce, which is also equal to 480 grains, but it is divided into eight drams instead of twelve pennyweights like the troy ounce. The apothecaries’ ounce is used for measuring medicines and drugs.

There are also other historical or regional ounces that have different values, such as the Spanish ounce, the French ounce, the Portuguese ounce, the Roman/Italian ounce, the Dutch metric ounce and the Chinese metric ounce.

How to Convert Ounces

Ounces can be converted to other units of weight by using conversion factors or formulas. Here are some examples of how to convert ounces to other units of weight in the US customary system and the SI system:

  • To convert ounces to pounds, divide by 16. For example, 32 oz = 32/16 = 2 lb.
  • To convert ounces to tons (short), divide by 32000. For example, 64000 oz = 64000/32000 = 2 tons.
  • To convert ounces to grams, multiply by 28.349523125. For example, 4 oz = 4 x 28.349523125 = 113.3980925 g.
  • To convert ounces to kilograms, multiply by 0.028349523125. For example, 8 oz = 8 x 0.028349523125 = 0.226796185 kg.
  • To convert ounces to milligrams, multiply by 28349.523125. For example, 2 oz = 2 x 28349.523125 = 56699.04625 mg.
  • To convert ounces to micrograms, multiply by 28349523.125. For example, 1 oz = 1 x 28349523.125 = 28349523.125 µg.

Where Ounces are Used

Ounces are used in different countries and regions for different applications and purposes. Here are some examples of where ounces are used:

  • In the United States, ounces are used for measuring packaged foods and food portions, postal items, areal density of fabric and paper, boxing gloves and firearms.
  • In the United Kingdom, ounces are used for measuring food portions and ingredients, woolen cloth and gold bullion.
  • In Canada, ounces are used for measuring food portions and ingredients, precious metals and gems and liquor bottles.
  • In Australia and New Zealand, ounces are used for measuring food portions and ingredients, precious metals and gems and baby weights.
  • In China, ounces are used for measuring tea leaves and pearls.
  • In India, ounces are used for measuring gold ornaments and silk fabrics.

History of Ounces

Ounces have a long history that dates back to ancient times. Here are some highlights of the history of ounces:

  • The uncia was an ancient Roman unit of measurement that was one-twelfth of a Roman pound or libra. It was also used as a unit of volume and area.
  • The uncia was borrowed into Old English as ynsan or yndsan from a Vulgar Latin form with ts for c before i (palatalization). This became inch in modern English.
  • The uncia was also borrowed into Middle English through Anglo-Norman and Middle French as unce, once or ounce. This became ounce in modern English.
  • The ounce was divided into different fractions and multiples, such as the dram, the pennyweight, the scruple and the mark.
  • The ounce was used in different systems of measurement, such as the imperial system, the US customary system, the troy system and the apothecaries’ system.
  • The ounce was standardized by international agreements, such as the international yard and pound agreement of 1959 and the international troy ounce agreement of 1958.
