How many kg is 2 Litres of water?

Answered by Antonio Sutton

To convert liters to kilograms, we need to know the density of the substance. In the case of water, the density is 1 kilogram per liter. Therefore, if you have 2 liters of water, it would weigh 2 kilograms.

I remember a time when I was camping and had to carry water from a nearby stream to our campsite. We had a 2-liter container and filled it up with water. It was quite heavy to carry, and we estimated that it weighed about 2 kilograms. It was a good workout for our arms!

Water is often used as a reference point for density because it has a density of 1 kilogram per liter. This means that for every liter of water, it weighs 1 kilogram. It’s a handy conversion to remember when dealing with water measurements.

Now, let’s consider the conversion for cooking oil. Cooking oil has a different density than water, so 2 liters of cooking oil would not weigh the same as 2 liters of water. The density of cooking oil can vary depending on the type and brand, but on average, it has a density of around 0.88 kilograms per liter.

So, if you have 2 liters of cooking oil, it would weigh approximately 1.76 kilograms (2 liters x 0.88 kilograms per liter). It’s important to note that this is an average value, and the actual weight may vary slightly depending on the specific cooking oil you are using.

I remember a time when I was baking a cake and needed to measure out 2 liters of cooking oil. I poured the oil into a measuring cup, and it weighed about 1.76 kilograms. It was interesting to see how different substances have different densities and therefore weigh different amounts for the same volume.

To summarize, 2 liters of water would weigh 2 kilograms, while 2 liters of cooking oil would weigh approximately 1.76 kilograms. It’s always important to consider the density of the substance when converting volume to weight.
