Choose From the Following Subjects


liter (L)
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.

Liters per 100 kilometers
is simply written
L/100 km
