That depends on the substance.

If its water, 1 liter weighs about 1 kilogram. 2912 liters would be about 2912 kilograms.

Though that is only for water, any other substance will not be the same as it depends on the density.

1 kg = 2.2 lbs
1 liter = 2.2 lbs
1 liter = about .25 gallons
1 gallon = 8 lbs

so 16 liters is 35.2 lbs

Re: Converting liters to pounds!

so if i wanted to convert 82,678 pounds of a substance with a density of 0.916 g/mL to litres, what would the answer be? 40,942 litres?

Re: Converting liters to pounds!

A little bit less than that actually.

To convert 82,678 lbs into liters you must first convert pounds into grams.

1 kg=2.2 lbs
1 kg=1000 g

So, if you divide 82,678/2.2 and multiply this answer by 1000 you get the number of grams.

The next step is to convert the number of grams into milliliters by using the known density. To do this, use the answer from above and divide it by the density. This will give you the number of milliliters you have. This answer can be divided by 1000 in order to give you the number of liters you have.

Hope this helps.

Re: Converting liters to pounds!

I suspect you are talking about aviation fuel because U.S. pilots and Airlines often use pounds as the measurement and others have converted over to liters. Av gas weighs 6.02 pounds per gallon which equals 1.60 pounds per liter.
