Which is greater 1500 mL or 1.5 L?

They are the same. There are 1000 milliliter in one liter. Therefore, 1500 milliliter is equal to 1500/1000 = 1.5 liters.

The two units are therefore the same.

How many liters are in one gallon?

1 US gallon = 3.785411784 liters.

1 Imperial (UK) gallon = 4.54609188 liters.

1 liter = 0.26417205 US gallons

1 liter = 0.21996919 Imperial (UK) gallons

Conversion to other units:

1 gallon [US, liquid] = 4 US quarts exactly

0.133681 ft3 and

128.000 fluid ounces and

0.003785 m3 and

3785.411 cm3 and

3785.411 ml

Note that a liter is constant across the world, so a US liter = a UK, British, English, Canadian, Indian, Chinese, etc... liter. 3.785 liters per gallon.

How are volume units related to length?

Here's all you need to know to convert between volumes (i.e. m^3 to cm^3).

Volume is distance x distance x distance. Any formula you think about. Cube=L^3 or LxWxH, sphere is 4/3 pi x r^3 (r is distance), cylinder = pi x r^2 x L (r x 2 and L).

Why is this? because volume extends to the 3rd dimension.

What used confuse me was when my maths teacher said that there were 1,000,000 cm^3 in a metre cubed. I knew that 100cm were in a metre but it confused me passed this. Thing is, that difference becomes cubed due to it being 3rd dimension. i.e. the difference is actually 100x100x100, i.e. 1 million.

Some other things to remember. 1 cm^3 is the same as 1 millilitre. cc actually means centimetre cubed, i.e. cm^3. As milli means 1 thousandth there are 1000ml in a litre, therefore 1000cm^3 in a litre.

By definition, 1 cubic centimeter (cc or cm3) = 1 milliliter = 1 mL = 1/1000 L. ("Milli" means 1/1000th.) In this way, a standard unit of length, the meter, is directly related to a standard unit of volume, the litre.

Thus, there are 1000 mL in a Litre, and that means that one cubic meter = 1000 L x 1000 mL/L = 1,000,000 mL = 1,000,000 cc (or exactly 1x106 cc), NOT 1000 cc as the previous contributor stated.

When the previous contributor wrote about a cube, he should have been more clear and wrote: "In the special case of a cube, volume = (length of any side of the cube)3 since all sides of a cube are of equal length."

In my opinion, the remainder of what the previous contributor wrote is correct and is a good description.

If you are asking about the standard units of measure used, 1 liter is exactly 1000 cubic centimeters, and one US liquid gallon is exactly 231 cubic inches.

If you are asking about calculating volume, that can be determined from length measurements.

In the special case of a cube, volume = length3.

.

In all other regular objects with straight sides (prism, pyramid, etc.) the volume will have a relationship to the length of any particular object that depends upon the geometry of the shape. In a rectangular prism, such as a shoe box, the volume is directly proportional to the length of any single dimension.

.

For spherical shapes, the volume is 4/3 pi r3, where r is the length of the radius.

For other shapes, the volume formula may be more complicated, and for irregular shapes, the volume may have to be estimated.

.

Some irregular shapes' volumes cannot be estimated or measured by length. The volume of a daisy flower, for example, can not readily be measured by conventional length measurements because the shape of the object (all those petals, stamen, stigma, filaments, and sepals, not to mention the stem, leaves, and roots) make it too difficult to calculate the volume by measure straight lengths. Other methods are required to measure the volumes of such irregular objects, including liquid displacement or three dimensional surface scanning or tomography.

How much does sea water weigh per cubic foot?

The weight of sea water really depends on a number of variables, including the temperature, the amount of salt (salinity) and whatever other foreign items may be present, and the depth, thus the pressure. But to get to the basic answer, seawater, at the surface, on average weighs 1027 kg/m3, or just over 64.1 lbs per cubic foot.

-----------

The question is another way of asking for density of salt water. Salt water has greater density than that of fresh water, due to the dissolved salt. Fresh water has a density of 1000 kg/cubic meter vs. an average density of 1027 kg/cubic meter for ocean salt water.

Why is milk measure in gallons and not by liter?

We all use basic arithmetic (+ - / *) in everyday life, and reading powers and scientific notation is useful for things like programming and reading some national geographic magazines and what not. The Pythagorean theorem is useful for some things. But I don’t understand how quadratic equations, calculus, radical expressions, sequences/series, and imaginary and complex numbers are used in everyday life. What are some REAL, USEFUL applications of these things?

How many cubic feet are in a gallon?

Gallons per cubic foot

1 cubic foot = 7.4805 US gallons

1 cubic foot -=6.2288 Imperial gallons

One cubic foot is equal to 7.4805 US Gallons, -6.2288 Imperial Gallons

Also,

1 cubic foot = 1728 cubic inches

1 US gallon = 231 cubic inches (by definition)

1 cubic foot = 1728/231 gallons = 576/77 gallons ~= 7.48 gallons

1 US gallon = 231/1728 cubic feet ~= 0.133681 cubic feet

Sample Water Bill Calculation

Assumptions:

Note: . This refers to 100 cubic feet. If your bill says you used 10 ccf, that would be 1000 cubic feet, or almost 7500 US gallons.

Also: "Water bills" can also include other costs such as sewer and trash collection. Read your bill closely to determine exactly what you're paying for.
