How do you convert litres into pounds?

User Avatar
There is no equivalence. A pound is a measure of mass. A litre is a measure of volume. The two measure different things and, according to basic principles of dimensional analysis, conversion from one to the other is not valid. If you are not convinced, consider a litre of air. How many pounds? Next consider a litre of water. How many pounds? The masses of equal volumes of the two substances will clearly be very different. There is no direct conversion between mass and volume: You need to know the density of the substance to enable you to carry out the conversion. If you can find the density of the substance (grams) then to convert the amount of litres to pounds: Convert it to kilograms to maintain the same unit Multiply the number of kilograms by 2.20462 (pounds/ kilogram) The result will be the amount of litres of the substance in kilograms

50 000 meters how many km?

User Avatar
Note that "kilo-" means "a thousands of a unit". Then, 1 km = 1,000 meters. Therefore: 50,000 meters is 50 kilometers.

How many meters are in one kilometer?

User Avatar
There are 1000 meters in a kilometer. The prefix kilo- means "1000". Examples: kilogram is one thousand grams kilohertz is one thousand oscillations per second kilovolt is one thousand volts kilobyte is roughly one thousand bytes of storage (used because 210, or 1024, is the power of two closest to 1000 bytes: it is easily close enough to one thousand, or one kilo-, for describing computer storage in general terms).

How many grams are in a tablespoon?

User Avatar
It depends on what you're measuring. What's the tablespoon holding? Butter or oregano? Sugar or salt? Molten lead or feathers? Grams are a unit of mass (or weight) and a tablespoon is a unit of volume. Therefore it depends entirely on what you are measuring -- it depends on the density of the substance. A tablespoon of lead will be much heavier than a tablespoon of feathers (although a gram of lead and a gram of feathers weigh exactly the same!). Similarly, a tablespoon of butter weighs a different number of grams than a tablespoon of salt. See the Web Links for a handy automatic conversion calculator. Just enter the food item, the units you have, and the units you want... and presto! For instance (for US tablespoon): 1 tablespoon of water weighs 14.79 grams 1 tablespoon of table salt weighs 18.25 grams 1 tablespoon of butter weighs 14.19 grams 1 tablespoon of oil (canola or soy) weighs 13.62 grams 1 tablespoon of sugar (granulated) weighs 12.5 grams 1 tablespoon of sugar (brown) weighs 13.8 grams (packed) Some other useful conversions: 16 tablespoons = 1 cup 3 teaspoons = 1 tablespoon 28.35 grams = 1 dry ounce 1 US tablespoon = 14.7867648 ml

What is the folly meter?

User Avatar
Sounds like a way of distinguishing how absurd, or possibly devastating, an outcome may be as a result of some action. Were you reading Popular Science and came across the "What Could Possibly Go Wrong" article? If so, I believe that is what they were indicating with the Folly Meter. The higher the number, the more absurd or disastrous the outcome of some action.

58 cm equals how many inches?

User Avatar
Inch and cm are used for measuring the distances. To convert the centimeters to inch we have to multiply the cm unit to 0.393701. This will convert the distance from cm to inch. The answer to the above question is 22.834 inches(approximately).
