The expansion ratio of oxygen from its boiling point of -297.4°F (-183.0°C) to 68°F (20.0 °C) is 1 to 860. (See the Air Products website at http://www.airproducts.com/)

Therefore, one cubic foot of liquid oxygen will expand to 860 cubic feet of gaseous oxygen.

There are 28.31685 liters per cubic foot, so:

860 ft³ x 28.31685 liters/ft³ = 24,352.49 liters.
