• This is a trick question. The kilogram is a unit of mass or weight, while the liter is a unit of liquid volume. In Canada we've used the Metric System since 1977. To compare your question to one using units in the the Imperial System, it would be like asking: How many pounds are there in a gallon? See how inane that is? The answer depends on what substance you are measuring. If it is water, the answer is about two kilograms. If it's two liters of molten lead, well, that weighs far more. (Read the related FAQ question on the right.)
• Actually if density= mass divided by volume, then mass= density times volume!!
• No conversion. You can't convert them. Kilograms are a unit of mass or weight. Liters are a measure of volume, normally associated with liquids.
• Scroll down to related links and look at "Explanation of Litre - Wikipedia".

A correction to this answer. The kilogram is the SI unit for MASS, not weight. Weight is measured in newtons.

## Related Questions This depends on the density of the substance liters - Volume kilograms - Weight 30 liters of water = 30 kilograms. There is no equivalence. Liters measure volume, kilograms measure mass. Liters can't be converted to kilograms. Liters measure volume, while kilograms measure mass. Liters and kilograms of what substance? Liters are a measure of volume, kilograms are a measure of mass. You will need the substance's density to find its mass in kilograms.  Since kilograms and liters measure different things, there is no standard conversion - 25 liters may have more kilograms, or less kilograms, depending on the substance involved. This cannot be sensibly answered. Liters is a measure of volume, kilograms is a measure of weight or mass. Liters can't be converted to kilograms. Liters measure volume, while kilograms measure mass.  Liters can't be converted to kilograms. Liters measure volume, while kilograms measure mass. 2,000 liters of plain water weighs approximately 2,000 (1,998.7) kilograms. Kilograms can't be converted to liters. Kilograms measure mass, while liters measure volume. Kilograms and liters really measure different things (mass, versus volume), so there is no general conversion between the two.  Liters can't be converted to kilograms. Liters measure volume, while kilograms measure mass. Liters are a measurement for the volume of a liquid; kilograms are a measurement for weight. Please reask your question. How many liters of fresh water equels 1.9 kilograms? How many liters of mercury, or sea water? Sea water from the Pacific Ocean or the Dead Sea? Now really... please be more specific. ;-) That depends on the density of what you are dealing with:800 liters of air has a mass of 0.96 kilograms 800 liters of water has a mass of 800 kilograms 800 liters of mercury has a mass of 10880 kilograms There is no general conversion between kilograms and liters. A liter is a unit of volume, while a kilogram is a unit of mass. Assuming you mean "How many kilos of water in 90 liters?", the answer is 90 kg. Kilograms can't be converted to liters. Kilograms measure mass, while liters measure volume. Kilograms can't be converted to liters. Kilograms measure mass, while liters measure volume. Liters is a measure of volumen. Kilograms is a unit of mass. A kilogram is a unit of mass. a litre is a unit of capacity. The two units are therefore incompatible. A kilogram is a unit of mass. A litre is a unit of capacity. The two units are therefore incompatible. Liters can't be converted to kilograms. Liters measure volume, while kilograms measure mass.
