Liters to Grams

Welcome to liters to grams, our article written for helping you with the l to g conversion.

Throughout our website we usually employ the American spelling variant liter, as opposed to litre, the international writing.

Similarly, we use gram, instead of gramme.

The liter is a unit of volume; its symbol is l or L, but from time to time you come across the abbreviation ltr.

In turn, one gram (g) is 1 / 1000 of the International System of Unit’s base unit of mass, the kilogram.

L to G

The link between the volume (V) and the mass (m) is called density.

The volumetric mass density D is defined as m / V, which, for any given material, varies depending on both, temperature as well as pressure conditions.

In addition, different materials generally have different densities.

As liters to grams is a volume to mass conversion, the substance-specific density connects the mass and volume.

Note that the density changes in function of pressure and temperature.

How to Convert Liters to Grams

We employ the formula m = D × V.

In case of water at sea level at 39.2 Fahrenheit D is 1, so m is V.

Under these circumstances one liter of water equals one thousands grams.

Liters to Grams Formula

The formula is: [g] = 1000 × D × [L].

The approximation 1000 g ~ L most likely is good enough for cooking water.

But what about milk, oil, flour etc?

In this case, you substitute D in the ltr to g formula with your specific density.

The value for D and the corresponding unit is always needed.
