Pounds in a LiterThey aren't comparable. A liter is a unit of volume, while a pound is a unit of weight (kilograms are a measure of mass, pounds are strictly weight). So a liter of water will weigh differently than a liter of oil.

A liter (or litre) is a measure of volume, not mass or weight. If you are asking about the weight of a liter of water, then it weighs 1 kilogram exactly at standard temperature and pressure (about 0 C and roughly 100kPa) - density and volume of fluids fluctuate a bit with temperature and pressure. Or 2.2 pounds. There are 2.2 pounds in a kilogram.

--> They cannot be converted by a generic formula like kilograms to pounds, but there is a way to convert them for specific products and hence comparable. Every liquid has a density value (or specific gravity) at room temperature, ground level. Some chemicals solutions may be 0.90, some may be 1.1 but it varies from product to product. As mentioned above in the Answer, the specific gravity of water is 1 and hence 1 litre translates to 1kg. If the specific gravity of your product is 0.90, then the weight of 1 litre will be 1 litre x 0.90 specific gravity = 0.900 kgs; 0.90 kgs x 2.2046 = 1.984 lbs.

So, first step in doing the conversion is to find out the specific gravity of your product.
Doesn't work that way. Pounds is weight litre is volume, the answer will vary with the density of the material.

Different units measuring different things. Pounds are a unit of weight measurement. Litres are a measure of volume.

A litre is 2.11 US pints, or 1.7 imperial pints (UK).

A kilogram is 2.2 lbs.

One litre of water weighs one kilo.
