      Re: Litres to metric tonnes

      It depends slightly on things like type, temperature, and pressure, but petroleum oil has an approximate density of 0.88 kg/L

      So there will be about 1136.36 liters per tonne

        Would this calculation apply to vegetable oils such as crude palm oil, coconut oil etc.

        Thanks for the help!

          different type of oil have different viscosity and specific gravity ... so make sure your figure is correct

            75600 liters= how many metric tons ?

              Assuming from what you quoted, you are still asking about oil, if we assume a density of 0.88 kg/L, then 66000 kg or 66 t.

              However, the answer varies with density. Typical vegetable oils are around 0.92 kg/L, so 75000 L would be 69 t. Gasoline is much lighter than oil, around 0.73 kg/L so 75000 L of gasoline would be 54.8 t. Each of these products have lot specific densities that vary a little around the nominal, so use a measured density for the specific lot in question.

                  The answer would be different for feathers and lead. You have to identify the substance or give its density; otherwise, the question can't be answered.

                      You should know the density of your oil (it varies), but 0.84 kg/L is typical, so 10 339.6 kg = 10.3396 t.

                        How many metric tonnes of oil if 209 in litres?

                          Depends on the type of oil. #2 diesel is around 0.84 kg/L, most vegetable ois are around 0.92 kg/L. Using those two numbers, 209 L could vary from 175 kg - 193 kg. Divide by 1000 for tonnes.

                              Density can vary lot to lot as petroleum products are mixtures of many different chemicals. Figures below are typical and can vary:
                              Motor gasoline: 0.73 kg/L (Av gas is lighter)
                              Automotive diesel: 0.84 kg/L. Heavy diesel used in ships can go up to 0.95 kg/L or higher.

                              Gasoil seems to be about the same as automotive diesel. Jet fuel (and winter or #1 diesel) are around 0.8 kg/L.

                              If you need any great accuracy, use measured density for the lot in question. Also, all the densities vary with temperature due to thermal expansion.
