# What does a liter measure in liquid?

Liter measures the volume of the liquid.

### What is the unit of measure for a flask?

Depends what you want to measure: its height, width, circumference, etc. But quite often, what is most interesting to know about different recipients is its volume - how much liquid it holds. The standard measure for this is the liter, or the milliliter (= cubic centimeter).

### How many grams are there in a liter?

It depends on the density, and what the liquid is. One liter of water at 4°C will weigh 1000 grams; this is the temperature at which water is densest. If the liquid is alcohol, which is less dense than water, there will be fewer grams in a liter. A litre is a measure of volume, grams are a measure of mass. Without further information no conversion is possible. There's 1000 grams in 1kilogram. And theres…

### How would you determine the density of an unknown liquid?

First measure out a known volume of the liquid using a beaker or measuring cup, say a liter or 50 mililiters or something of the like, then measure the mass of that amount of liquid with a balance(remember to subtract the mass of the liquid's container), then divide that mass by the volume of liquid you've used and, hey presto, you have a density.
