Forum rules
Dear convert-me.com 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 convert-me.com FaceBook page

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

That depends on the substance you are converting. By the way, there is no such unit 'cubic liters', liter itself is a measure of capacity.

One liter of water weighs exectly 1 kilogram, but the same one liter of oil, for example, weighs less. To convert from capacity to weight/mass you have to know the density or specific gravity of the substance.
