Re: Converting Kilograms to liters

hello! can you please tell me how to convert kilograms to liter?
the liquid is a fruit juice though

the original data was in metric tons, then i converted it to kilograms.. how can i covert it to liters? Do I need to consider densities and specific gravities??

Yes, you need to know the density. A natural fruit juice, or a concentrate diluted to natural strength will only be a little denser than water, 1 kg/L, almost certainly less than 1.1 kg/L. However, a concentrate, such as orange juice concentrate, will be appreciably denser, maybe 1.4 kg/L. If you need any accuracy you need to measure your particular batch.

Assuming you have density in kilograms per liter, just divide the kilograms by it.

It depends on the density, which can vary, but 0.81 kg/L is a typical value for jet fuel.

Re: Converting Kilograms to liters

i read from the other site the conversion of kilogram to liter:divide kilogram from 0.96, different from what i read here

Either the other site is useless, or you didn't get all their advice. Different liquids have different densities, or ratios of mass to volume. Gasoline is around 0.73 kg/L, water is 1 kg/L, a heavy sugar syrup or concentrated chemical solutions may be 1.4 kg/L or higher.

The conversion between liters and kilograms is variable and that conversion is called density. You either have to look it up in a reference or measure it. To look it up, it helps to know what liquid you are talking about.

Re: Converting Kilograms to liters

I am trying to work out the circulating blood volume of a horse. I understand it is 10% of bodyweight, so if horse weighs 500kg what would this work out at in litres? I am rubbish at maths.

10% of a 500 kg horse is 50 kg.

You need density of blood to convert to volume. Blood has slightly higher density than water (approx 1 kg/L). I've seen figures of 1.055 - 1.06 for human blood; I assume (but don't know) that horse blood is similar.

50 kg x 1 L/1.06 kg = 47 L

You need to know the density. Most vegetable oils are about 0.92 kg/L; I will assume algal oil is similar, because I don't have any better figure.

3.2 kg x 1 L/0.92 kg = 3.5 L approx.

For any precision, measure the density, and divide by it.
