Capacity is discussed here. Liquids as we all know have no regular shape. So, we calculate their volume by the capacity of the container they are held in.
The standard unit for capacity is litre.
As in the length and mass, the various units for capacity are as follows:
This can be remembered by
The ‘L’ in Lady stands for LITRE which is the standard unit of capacity.
For Examples:
1. kℓ → ℓ
1 kℓ = 1000 ℓ
2.7 kℓ = 2.7 × 1000 ℓ
Therefore, 2.7 kℓ = 2700 ℓ
2. ℓ → mℓ
1ℓ = 1000 mℓ
17.03 ℓ = 17.03 × 1000
Therefore, 17.03 ℓ = 17030 mℓ
3. ℓ → kℓ
1ℓ = 1/1000 kℓ
9ℓ = 9/1000 kℓ
Therefore, 9ℓ = 0.009 kℓ
4. mℓ → ℓ
1 mℓ = 1/1000 ℓ
7 mℓ = 7/1000
Therefore, 7 mℓ = 0.007
Since volume is equivalent to capacity, capacity can also be expressed in cubic units.
1ℓ = 1000cm³
That is, 1 ℓ of liquid occupies 1000cm³ space.
Since 1 ℓ = 1000mℓ
1000 ℓ = 1000m³
Therefore, 1 mℓ = 1cm³
If the volume is
182 cm³, capacity is 182 mℓ.
9431 cm³, capacity is 9.431 ℓ.
1001 cm³, capacity is 1001 mℓ.
80907 cm³, capacity is 80.907 ℓ.
