Q:

How many liters are in one ton?

A:

Litres are a measurement of volume, while tons are a unit of weight, so the answer varies depending on the density of the substance being measured. The denser the substance, the less of it is needed to reach a ton.

It takes, for instance, almost twice as much propane as it does water to make up a ton. There are even differences in density between different types of water. It takes 887.67 litres of sea water to make one U.S. ton and 907.18 litres of pure water to achieve the same weight. The formula for converting volume to weight is: density = mass/volume.

  • Q:

    How many grams would occupy 12 ml?

    A:

    If the substance being measured is liquid water, then 12 grams of water will occupy 12 ml because the density of liquid water is 1 g/ml. If a substance other than liquid water is being measured, the density of that substance is needed to calculate how many grams of it would occupy 12 ml.
