Calculate Liters

The exact definition of a liter, the conversion into other metric units and how many liters certain containers can hold.

One litre (BE) or liter (AE) is one cubic decimeter (1 dm³). One decimeter (1 dm) is ten centimeters (10 cm). A liter is therefore the volume that fits into a cube with a side length of 10 cm. A liter can also have other forms. The liter is a commonly used unit of volume, water in particular is often expressed in liters. One liter of water at 4°C and normal pressure weighs almost exactly one kilogram.

Here you can convert liters into other metric volume units. Please enter one value, the others will be calculated. Fractions can also be given, e.g. 3/8, which is sometimes found in recipes.

Milliliters, ml, cm³:1/1000 l
Centiliters, cl:1/100 l
Deciliters, dl:1/10 l
Liters, l, dm³:1 l
Hectoliters, hl:100 l
Cubik meters, m³:1000 l

On the following pages you can calculate how many liters are in certain containers of a certain size: Box (cuboid), Can (cylinder), Bucket (truncated cone), Bowl (spherical cap), Plate (spherical segemnt), Barrel, Tub (general truncated cone), Goblet (semi-spheroid), Tank (cylindrical segment), Pool (wedge-cuboid), Ball, Balloon (sphere), Egg (two half spheroids), Tip (cone), Funnel (double truncated cone), Measuring Cup (truncated elliptic cone), Measuring Spoon (rounded cone), Pie Slice (cylindrical sector), Tetra Container (tetrahedron), Test Tube (cylinder and hemisphere), Pipette (cylinder and double truncated cone), Capsule, Round Cornered Box, Octagonal Box and Heart-Shaped Box. Of course, these objects can also have different shapes and these shapes can also have different names.
