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

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

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
