Liters into pounds

Generally speaking, when soil is measured it is always done by volume unless you are attempting to calculate loading. In that situation, the best idea is to look this up in a civil engineering reference book.

Soil does not have a specific weight. Depending on the actual mix (how much clay, loam etc.) and the water content at the time of measurement determines the weight.

If you are attempting to build asupport structure (like an elevated flowerpot) then the safest bet is to assume the volume is water so 1 kg per liter (or 2.2 pounds per liter)

Hope this helps

You need to know the specific gravity of the substance you want to convert. Dry soil v wet soil would have very different weights.

This post is not meant as a critique, simply as a correction and explanation.

If the substance is fresh water, or any other substance which equals the specific gravity of water (SG=1.0), then "1 liter=2.2 pounds(1kilo)" is correct.

However, it won't be correct if the substance is lighter or heavier than water. As an example, the substance Mercury has a specific gravity of 13.59 g/cm^3, so 1 L (liter) of mercury weighs 13.59 kg. That's 29.96 lbs.

1 L will only weigh 2.2046 lbs if the specific gravity is 1.0, such as pure water at 4º C. A volume to mass statement should include the specific gravity, density or substance as a reference.
