Capacity
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
King Harry Died Lady Didn`t Cry Much.
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
Note:Since volume is equivalent to capacity, capacity can also be expressed in cubic units. 1ℓ = 1000cm ^{3}That is, 1 ℓ of liquid occupies 1000cm^{3} space.
Since 1 ℓ = 1000mℓ
1000 ℓ = 1000m^{3}
Therefore, 1 mℓ = 1cm^{3}
If the volume is
182 cm^{3}, capacity is 182 mℓ.
9431 cm^{3}, capacity is 9.431 ℓ.
1001 cm^{3}, capacity is 1001 mℓ.
80907 cm^{3}, capacity is 80.907 ℓ.
