Enter the total substance weight (grams) and the total substance volume (L) into the Grams Per Liter Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Grams Per Liter. 

Grams Per Liter Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Grams Per Liter.

GPL = W / V


  • GPL is the Grams Per Liter (g/L)
  • W is the total substance weight (grams) 
  • V is the total substance volume (L) 

To calculate the grams per lite, divide the substance weight by the volume.

How to Calculate Grams Per Liter?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Grams Per Liter.

  1. First, determine the total substance weight (grams). 
  2. Next, determine the total substance volume (L). 
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = GPL = W / V.
  4. Finally, calculate the Grams Per Liter.
  5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem : 

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

total substance weight (grams) = 56

total substance volume (L) = 78

GPL = W / V = ?
