How many cups are in a gallon?
1 US gallon = 16 US Cups (exact) = 15.14 Metric cups 1 Imperial Gallon = 19.215 US cups = 18.18 Metric cups Ans 2 I would agree totally on your US measurement, but in the rest of the world, a 'cup' is a nebulous amount and I think depends on which country you are in. In UK, a cup is half of an Imperial pint. I cannot find a 'metric cup' defined anywhere with authority, and your amounts specified above make it...

How many milliliters are in 1 liter?
There are 1000 milliliters in a liter This is because milli in the SI system means a thousandth (1/1000) or 0.001 (of a liter). To convert from liters to ml, multiply by 1000; To convert from milliliters to liters, divide by 1000. Other prefixes are listed below. 10^12 - Tera 10^9 - Giga 10^6 - Mega 10^3 - Kilo 10 - Unit 10^-1 - deci 10^-2 - centi 10^-3 - milli 10^-6 - micro 10^-9 - nano 10^-12 - pico 1 litre=1000 millilitres ...

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...

How much does 1 liter of beer weighs in Kg?
depends on the type of beer, place of brewery and everything like that. There is no conversion from weight to capacity, without knowing density. Presuming that beer has a very similar (but slightly higher) density to water, then 1 litre should weigh a bit more than 1 kg. ...
How do you convert litres into pounds?
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...
