1 litre: how many ml, m3, cm3, quarts?
The litre (or liter in American English) is a unit of volume of liquids and gases, abbreviated to ‘l’ in the majority of countries and ‘L’ in America, Canada and Australia.
It is accepted by the metric (SI) system, although it is not the base unit.
The base unit is the cubic metre (m3) and its relation to the litre can be stated as: 1l = 10-3 m3. One litre is often defined as the capacity of a cubic decimetre (dm3), or, in other words, the volume of a cube with dimensions of 10 cm x 10 cm x 10 cm (10 cm3). A litre of water at 0°C weighs almost exactly 1 kilogramme (0.997 kg).

The name of the unit is a direct borrowing from French litre, which in turn stems from an archaic French measure of capacity of grains, litron. The word was ultimately derived from the Greek word ‘litra’, which, interestingly, appears to be a cognate of ‘libra’, the name for a zodiac sign represented by a pair of scales.
