Definition of Litre

There is a definition of the Litre available on Wikipedia. Click here to check it out ("Litre - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia").

In short, "A litre is defined as a special name for a cubic decimetre (1 L = 1 dm). Hence 1 L ≡ 0.001 m (exactly).".
The litre can also be defined as 1L = 1000cm = 1000 cc (cm and cc both refer to "cubic centimetre")

  1. We know that:
    • 1L = 1000mL = 1000cm = 1000cc;
    • 1m = 100cm;
    • 1cm = 10mm;
    • 1mm = 0.001m;
    • 1dm = 0.1m;
    • 1mm = 0.01dm; and,
    • 1m = 10dm
  2. Also:
  3. Therefore, our factor becomes 1L/m/mm
