Dear forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

Is the weight of litres the same as kilograms....i need to know what is 150litres to kilograms.

It is only "the same" for water or things that have the same density as water. A liter of lead is much heavier than a kilogram, a liter of feathers, lighter.

In cooking, most liquids are close enough to the density of water to get by, but flour, sugar, etc are not. You have to find the bulk density.

For petroleum products, gasoline is considerably lighter than water, heavy fuel oil is slightly lighter than water. Salt water is heavier than fresh water. There are no good approximations; you have to find data on the density.

If it floats, it's lighter than water. If it sinks, heavier.

There is a conversion on our site here:

Don't forget to pick the substance (e.g., water, sugar, oil, etc.) from the list as the conversion depends on the particular substance.
