To convert liter to ton, or, more precisely, to calculate the weight of the fluid (bulk materials) in tonnes by knowing its volume in liters, divide the number of liters by 1000, then multiply by the density of the substance, measured in grams per cubic centimeter. Ie:

MT=Vл/1000*P, where:

MT - mass of the substance, in tonnes,

Vл - the volume of material in liters

R - density of the substance in grams per cubic centimeter.

For example, let's calculate the mass (in tonnes) 10 liters of water.

The density of water, measured under normal conditions is 1 g/CC.

So the mass of 10 litres (a bucket) of water will be:

MT=10/1000*1=0.01 tons

MT=Vл/1000*P, where:

MT - mass of the substance, in tonnes,

Vл - the volume of material in liters

R - density of the substance in grams per cubic centimeter.

For example, let's calculate the mass (in tonnes) 10 liters of water.

The density of water, measured under normal conditions is 1 g/CC.

So the mass of 10 litres (a bucket) of water will be:

MT=10/1000*1=0.01 tons

If the density of the substance measured in SI units, i.e. kilograms per cubic meter, to calculate the mass of liquid in tons need to divide the number of liters by 1,000,000 and multiply by the density of matter measured in kilograms per cubic meter.

As a formula it would look like the following:

MT=Vл/1000000*P, where:

MT - mass of the substance, in tonnes,

Vл - the volume of material in liters

R - density of the substance in kilograms per cubic meter.

Calculation of the mass of 10 liters of water (given that its density is 1000 kg/cubic meter) in this case would be the following:

MT=10/1000000*1000=0.01 tons

As a formula it would look like the following:

MT=Vл/1000000*P, where:

Most often the translation of liters into tons, more specifically, volume-to-mass is used in the accounting of fuels and lubricants (fuels and lubricants). This is due to the fact that the supply of fuel is mainly produced in containers of fixed volume (the tank), and accounting is happening in mass units. To measure the density of the next batch of gasoline or diesel fuel, there are special tables of the average density of all brands of GSM, which may be used instead of density values specified in the invoice documents.

For example, the density of gasoline of marks And-76 and AI-80 is equivalent to 0,715; density of gasoline AI-92 to 0,735; density of gasoline AI-95 to 0.750 in; density of gasoline AI-98 for 0,765.

Unit of measure density - g/CC.

When reconciling the accounting system of GSM with the relevant authorities (Rostekhnadzor, the tax Inspectorate) and more simplified conversion litres to tonnes:

In this case, the density of liquefied gas is equal to 0.6 t/m3;

the density of gasoline of all grades of 0.75 t/m3;

the density of diesel fuel is 0.84 t/m3.

You should note that if you use a non-si unit of density measurement "tonnes per cubic meter (t/m3), the numerical value of the density coincides with the density measured in "grams per cubic centimeter (g/CC).

I.e. t/m3 is identical to g/cubic cm

For example, the density of gasoline of marks And-76 and AI-80 is equivalent to 0,715; density of gasoline AI-92 to 0,735; density of gasoline AI-95 to 0.750 in; density of gasoline AI-98 for 0,765.

# Advice 2 : How to convert liters of gasoline per ton

Modern Economics considers everything. It often happens that the transactions between entrepreneurs for releasing the consignment of goods are made not on the basis of displacement and its actual volume. In this regard, consider the most frequent variant – translation of liters of gasoline of different grades in tons.

# Advice 3 : How to transfer fuel in tons

To transfer fuel in tons convenient for filling out paperwork. And, of course, to sell the fuel too convenient tons, not gallons. Often, however, with this transfer, many problems arise.

When you want to calculate gasoline, diesel fuel, liquefied petroleum gas not in bulk, in weight units as basic unit of calculation is necessary to take their actual density (specific gravity). To calculate this quite simple. For this you just need available the number of liters multiply by actual density. Then the result is divided by 1000, and obtained the required number.

2

The only thing that can affect the conversion of fuel from gallons to tonnes, is the temperature. The hotter, the more fuel specific weight. Therefore, the Ministry of industry and energy of the Russian Federation to facilitate these calculations and to do it without errors, made the decision to average the density value for gasoline. For example, for fuel grade A-76 (AI-80) the average specific density is 0,715 grams per cubic centimeter. For gasoline AI-92 is set to the average actual density within 0,735 grams per cubic centimeter, and for AI-95, this figure is 0.750 in grams. As for brand fuel AI-98, the average specific weight is 0,765 grams per cubic centimeter.

In the case where it is necessary to calculate the translation from liters to tonnes of diesel fuel (this is usually necessary in the retail trade), you need to use the following formula: M = V x 0.769 /1000. Where M is the volume of diesel fuel in tons, V is the volume of diesel fuel in litres, 0,769 is a density for diesel fuel is based on kilograms per liter.

It is possible to calculate the transfer of fuel to tonnes, use the average value, which was adopted in Rostekhnadzor. There are own rules in calculations fuel density. For example, for liquefied natural gas, the average value of 0.6 tonnes per cubic meter, petrol - 0.75 tons per cubic meter, and for diesel fuel, the figure of 0.84 t/m3.

# Advice 4 : How to transfer a liter of gasoline in pounds

Quite often accountants have to deal with such a situation, when in the primary documents from the supplier the cost

**of gasoline**are based on one**liter**, and the results of the fuel must occur in kilograms. Then there is the need of the translation of the volume units to mass units.You will need

- calculator;
- - handle;
- table physico-chemical properties of petroleum products;
- paper.

In order to transfer

**a liter**and**of gasoline**, in kilograms, calculate the weight of fuel, that is, its density. This value has special significance for the storage of fuel in the tanks. The density**of gasoline**can be found by dividing its mass by the volume. However, the density of all petroleum products is relative, since so much depends on changes in air temperature.2

Dealing with a dimensionless quantity, divide the volume

**of gasoline**at a temperature, which was recorded at the time of determining the mass of water at a temperature of + 4oC, taken in exactly the same volume, because at this temperature it is known that the mass of water is one kilogram. The resulting value is the relative density.3

With increasing temperature the volume

**of gasoline**increases. To determine the density, subtract from the initial high temperature and resulting value multiply by the coefficient of volume expansion**of gasoline**. The value of the coefficient in the table find the physico-chemical properties of petroleum products. To the desired product of the add unit. The resulting amount and multiply by the original amount**of gasoline**. Thus, you will learn how to change the volume**of gasoline**with increasing temperature.4

To put

**a litre****of petrol**in pounds, divide its volume by the density. Average values of density, independent of temperature, regulated by the state and approved by the Ministry of industry and energy.Note

In order to avoid errors when writing to registers, keep records of gasoline in two natural units of measurement – liters and kilograms.

Useful advice

In order to avoid becoming a victim of fraud vendors often overstate the actual density, and hence the price, it is advisable to keep records of gasoline in liters.

# Advice 5 : How to convert liters of gasoline into tons

In the modern economy to account for the lubricants most often used actual weight of the goods. As fuel, as a rule, put in special tanks with fixed volume, a need arises to transfer the received liters per unit of mass.

To produce correct recalculation of liters

**of gasoline**in mass units of**tons**, determine the density of the incoming fuel shipments. To do this, use the special table with the average density for all grades of fuels and lubricants.2

If you are given the

**gasoline**of grade A-76 or with the trademark AI-80, their average density is equal 0,715 grams per cubic centimeter.3

In the case that you received with the brand of petrol AI-92, its density is equal to the value 0,735 grams per cubic centimeter.

Sometimes it is allowed to apply the simplified system of calculating density, if you are coordinating it with the Rostekhnadzor authorities or tax inspection. Under this system, the density of liquefied gas is taken as 0.6 tons per cubic meter, the density of diesel fuel is equivalent to 0.84 tons per cubic meter, and a density for

**gasoline**of any brand – about 0.75**tons**per cubic meter. Moreover, the density with the unit of measure in tons per cubic meter identical in density values where the unit of measurement is grams per cubic centimeter.6

If you want a more accurate measurement

**of gasoline**, use for calculation the density of the incoming fuel invoices. In this case, the density calculation will take into account the air temperature, different from the standard 20 degrees Celsius.7

Determining density

**of gasoline**, multiply this value by the volume of fuel in liters and translate the received liters of fuel mass unit "**ton**". To do this, divide the number of gallons on the conversion factor 1000. In the end, you will receive the weight measurement**of gasoline**in tonnes.
