WHAT IS A LITER?
liter
(L)
also spelled (litre)
is the derived unit for
VOLUME
Use the symbol L
So you may ask "what's with a capital letter
L
for liter?
Is that a capital
L
for the
unit of measure named
after a person like C for Celsius? No....
You see, when decimal dimensions were described
long before the typewriter we would have to
write the
script .
But as technology came along it became
apparent that typewriters were not equipped with
so attempts were made to use the lower case "l" (el).
Then it became further confusing to write "1l" (lower case
"el")
as the "1" and "l" (el)
looked too similar as did the capital "I" (eye). So the capital
L
was chosen as the symbol for
the derived base unit liter.
That is the only exception in this so keep going!

Measure Volume of gasoline or the Volume
of most any refreshing beverage. 


Volume is the amount of space in a contained
substance like water in a swimming pool measured in liters.


Which has
more...
750 mL (milliliters) or
1 L (liter)?
You are
Absolutely right!


There are exactly 1000 mL
in
1 L (liter)

DID
YOU KNOW? ( Video)
that you can divide 1 meter
by exactly 10 equal parts
(10 cm x 10 cm x 10 cm)
then make
a cube (1000 cmณ) of it to fill with
water
and you will find that it contains
exactly 1 L (1 liter)
(1000 mL)
of water
and is the mass of exactly 1
kg (1 kilogram) (1000 g)
ALL SIMPLY RELATED IN 10!
