Converting liters to tons involves two major steps. The first is to convert the liters to cubic meters. The second step is to convert the cubic meters to tons (basically using density at this stage).
- Convert the liters to cubic meters
1 liter is equal to 0.001 cubic meters. Convert liters to cubic meters by multiplying the volume in liters by 0.001.
- Convert the cubic meters to kilograms
Use the density of the substance to convert the volume to mass in kilograms. Do this by multiplying the volume (in kilograms per cubic meters) with the volume you already calculated.
- Convert the kilograms to tons
Convert the mass to tons by dividing by 1000.
