Enter the weight and density into the calculator to determine the volume in liters. This calculator can also evaluate any of the variables given the others are known.

Pounds To Liters Formula

The following formula is used to convert pounds to liters.

L = P / D


  • L is the volume in liters P is the weight in pounds D is the density of the substance (pounds/liter)

To calculate the volume in liters, divide the weight in pounds by the density of the substance in pounds per liter.

What is a Pounds To Liters?

Pounds to Liters is a conversion factor that is used to convert a measurement of weight (pounds) to a measurement of volume (liters). This conversion is often used in cooking, chemistry, and other fields where measurements need to be converted from one unit to another. The exact conversion factor can vary depending on the specific substance being measured, as different substances have different densities.

How to Calculate Pounds To Liters?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Pounds To Liters using the formula: L = P / D

  1. First, determine the weight in pounds (P).
  2. Next, determine the density of the substance (D) in pounds per liter.
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = L = P / D.
  4. Finally, calculate the volume in liters (L).
  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.

weight in pounds (P) = 50

density of the substance (D) = 2
