  • Liters to pounds

    I would like to know how many liters are in 5 pounds. I need a container that holds 5 pounds and the containers are 5 liters and 8.5 liters. How do you convert that to pounds?

    What is the substance? It will depend on the density of the substance.

    Water has a density of 1 kilogram per liter.

    5 liters = 5 kilograms = 11 pounds
    8.5 liters = 8.5 kilograms = 18.7 pounds

    Substances other than water will differ.

        Most cooking oil is around 0.9 kg/L (different types of oil might range 0.88 - 0.92 kg/L), so

        1 L x 0.9 kg/L x 1lb/0.4536 kg = 1.98 lb, call it 2 lb.

            How would you convert Liters to pounds, Propane is the substance. so say 125 liters of propane is how many pounds? Does anyone know the convertion for this? or a formula that can be used?

              The density of propane is about 0.51 kg/L, so 125 L is 63.75 kg.
              63.75 kg x 1 lb/0.45359 kg = 140.5 lb

                  Densities of lubricants can vary just like any othe petroleum product. However, 10 L is probably between 8.5 - 9 kg.

                        Hi, might be easier to answer this if you say what you are trying to do.

                        (if i take your question at face value, i think *eeek!* You are somewhere with a cylinder of chlorine gas and you don't know how to work out the answer???? - I'm sure this is not what you are asking though, that would pretty much contravene any safety rules in any country.)

                          Okay, I ask this question cause I want to buy chlorine (liquid) and I've 2 places to buy. Place "A" gave me price use "kg" and place "B" use "liter". I want to know where the place that I can get cheaper price.

                            Liquid solutions are usually not really chlorine but sodium hypoclorite dissolved in water. What you really need to look at is the percentage of sodium hypoclorite, as most of the weight or volume of what you are buying is water.

                            The density of the solution WILL depend on the concentration, but for concentrations usually sold, it is not appreciably different from the density of water, 1 kg/L.
