# Gram to Liter Conversion

**Gram to liter conversion** can be a tricky one, as it depends on the density of the substance under consideration. That's why we've built this g to litres converter and put a **big database of densities** inside!

Read on to discover how to convert grams to liters by hand (and liters to grams as well) and about the nice features of our calculator.

## Gram to liter conversion

As gram is a unit of mass and liter a unit of volume, conversion between them is not that straightforward. To convert grams to liters, you must use the formula:

**Volume [l] = Mass [g] / Density [g/l]**

Pay attention to the units!

As for converting liters to grams, we only need to rearrange the formula above:

**Mass [g] = Density [g/l] × Volume [l]**

## Liter to gram conversion for water

For water, the conversion between grams and liters is easy because the density of water is about 1,000 [g/l]. This means that:

- The mass of water in grams is
**1,000 times its volume in liters**. - The volume of water in liters is a
**thousandth of its mass in grams**.

## FAQ

### What is 200 grams of milk converted to liters?

The answer is a bit less than 0.2 l, more precisely: 0.1942 l. This is because the density of milk is slightly higher than the density of water: it equals 1030 g/l. Hence the density formula gives `200 [g] / 1030 [g/l] = 0.1942 [l]`

, as claimed.

### How do I convert 500 g of oil to litres?

500 g of cooking oil is 0.5682 l. To arrive at this answer:

- Look up the density of oil: it's 880 g/l.
- Divide the mass (500 g) by the density.
- That is, perform the computation
`500 / 880 = 0.5682`

. - The answer is 0.5682 liter, as claimed.
