Full Answer

Liters and kilograms are approximately equivalent when the substance measured has a density of close to 1 kilogram per liter. A common substance with that density is water. Substances that float on water (like oil) are of lower density and have a greater volume for the same mass. Substances that sink, conversely, are of higher density and have less volume.
