How to Convert Grams to Liters

Scales are used to measure weight

To convert a gram measurement to a liter measurement, divide the weight by 1,000 times the density of the ingredient or material.

You can use this simple formula to convert:

liters = grams1,000 × ingredient density

Thus, the weight in liters is equal to the grams divided by 1,000 times the density of the ingredient or material.

For example, here's how to convert 500 grams to liters for an ingredient with a density of 0.7 g/mL.
500 g = 5001,000 × 0.7 = 0.714285714286 l

Grams and liters are both commonly used to measure cooking ingredients.

For cooking applications, most chefs suggest measuring dry ingredients by weight rather than volume to improve accuracy in the measurements.[1] The density of dry ingredients can vary for a variety of reasons, such as compaction.

The best way to ensure an accurate conversion is to use a scale. When a scale is not available, a calculator like the one above is a good way to estimate the weight to volume conversion.

Grams

A gram is the mass/weight equal to 1/1,000 of a kilogram and is roughly equivalent to the mass of one cubic centimeter of water.

The gram, or gramme, is an SI unit of weight in the metric system. Grams can be abbreviated as g; for example, 1 gram can be written as 1 g.

Liters

A liter is a unit of volume equal to 1,000 cubic centimeters.[2] The liter is a special name defined for the cubic decimeter and is exactly equal to the volume of one cubic decimeter.

The liter is an SI accepted unit for volume for use with the metric system. A liter is sometimes also referred to as a litre. Liters can be abbreviated as l, and are also sometimes abbreviated as L or . For example, 1 liter can be written as 1 l, 1 L, or 1 ℓ.
