Volume (non-decimal)

To the mobile version
SI (metrisch):
m3
hl
dm3 = l
cl
cm3 = ml
U.S. dry volume:
bu
pk
gal (dry)
qt (dry)
pt (dry)


Rounding: significant numbers.
Decimal sign:

This is a converter for units of volume. Non-decimal units are partitioned into the correspondig subunits. In the U.S.A. there exist different systems for liquid and dry goods.

Usage: Type the known values into the fields in front of the corresponding units. After a mouseclick on any free space of the window or on the "calculate" button the calculation is performed. Read the result.
In the non-metric unit systems you may choose the units for display by a click on the corresponding checkbox. Units not chosen have a darker background. The calculated volume is the sum of all displayed values in a system. The smallest unit in each system is displayed with decimal partitioning, if needed. The values in the SI-units (m3, hl, l, cl, cm3) each correspond to the total calculated volume.
Move the mouse over a unit or click on it to read its full name. For another calculation just change the input values or you may click the "reset" button, eventually. A previous choice of units is not reset by this.

Example: You want to convert 1 hectoliter into gallons and pints in the U.S. liquid system. In the area for the U.S. liquid units choose gal and pt to be displayed. Type "1" into the field in front of "hl". After a mouseclick on any free space of the window or on the "calculate" button you can read the result. 1 hl corresponds to 26 gallons and 3.34 pints. In U. S. dry units this would be 22 gallons and 5.62 pints, and in the old Imperial system in the United Kingdom this would have been 21 gallons and 7.98 pints.

Remarks:
- Please note the remarks about the representation of numbers..
- There is no warranty for the calculation. Cactus2000 is not responsible for damage of any kind caused by wrong results.
