Hi Guys,

Does anyone know how many litres there are in a Kilogram? I understand different liquds may not weigh the same but to narrow it down how many Water or Petrol Litres are there in a KG?

im not sure if its that simple but any explination would be good.

Cheers

At 4 deg Centigrade the density of water is exactly 1kg per liter.

Petrol is less.

To convert mass (kilograms) to volume (litres), you need to know the density of the substance (water, petrol) you're converting.  Density is mass divided by volume (g/cm^3, kg/m^3, etc)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Density

Water's an easy example, because it has a density of 1 g/cm^3, or 1000 kg/m^3 (more or less).

Using Google, we can find that 1 litre = .001 cubic metres.

So now we can do the conversion:
.001 m^3 of water * 1000kg/m^3 = 1kg of water
