# How to learn to translate liters in decimeters

Liters and cubic decimeter volume determined. They are applicable in many devices metering of gas consumption. In everyday life we ​​often use the concept of a liter. Consider how liters associated with decimeter and how to translate one value - to another.

## Instruction how to learn to translate liters in decimeters

Step 1:

In practice, everything is simple. Namely, the two values ​​- a unit volume. Volume - is roughly the capacity of the body or the substance. In Russia, the main measurement system - metric in which 1 liter = 1 dm³ = 1000 cm³. Accordingly liter and dm is equal values.

Step 2:

Example. How many cubic decimetres contains a three-liter jar? Solution: three cubic decimeter correspond to three liters. Answer: three cubic decimeter.

Step 3:

Cubic decimeter - a unit of the SI system, equal to one thousandth of a cubic meter, and the liter - not, at the same time is also one thousandth cubic meter, this is the main difference.

Step 4:

Sometimes mistaken for a liter unit mass equal to a kilogram. This is not true. The mass of water in one liter of capacity, very close to one kilogram under normal conditions (namely, 998.2 grams). But the mass of oxygen, a volume of one liter, under normal circumstances can not be equal to one kilogram (namely 1.29 g). Weight per liter of a body or substance depends on the density calculated by the formula: m = p * V, where m - the mass, p - the density, V - volume.

Step 5:

An interesting fact is that in 1964 the ratio of cubic meters and liters was installed. If we compare a modern liter to a liter of the sample in 1901 year, the difference amounts to 0.000028 liters.

Step 6:

So, the final formula, valid today: 1 liter = 1 dm³ = 0.001 m³ = 1000 cm³.
