## Pounds in a
Liter

They aren't comparable. A liter is a unit of volume, while a pound
is a unit of weight (kilograms are a measure of mass, pounds are
strictly weight). So a liter of water will weigh differently than a
liter of oil.

**Answer**

A liter (or litre) is a measure of volume, not mass or weight.
If you are asking about the weight of a liter of water, then it
weighs 1 kilogram exactly at standard temperature and pressure
(about 0 C and roughly 100kPa) - density and volume of fluids
fluctuate a bit with temperature and pressure. Or 2.2 pounds. There
are 2.2 pounds in a kilogram.

--> They cannot be converted by a generic formula like
kilograms to pounds, but there is a way to convert them for
specific products and hence comparable. Every liquid has a density
value (or specific gravity) at room temperature, ground level. Some
chemicals solutions may be 0.90, some may be 1.1 but it varies from
product to product. As mentioned above in the Answer, the specific
gravity of water is 1 and hence 1 litre translates to 1kg. If the
specific gravity of your product is 0.90, then the weight of 1
litre will be 1 litre x 0.90 specific gravity = 0.900 kgs; 0.90 kgs
x 2.2046 = 1.984 lbs.

So, first step in doing the conversion is to find out the
specific gravity of your product.
Doesn't work that way. Pounds is weight litre is volume, the answer
will vary with the density of the material.

## Answer

Different units measuring different things. Pounds are a unit of
weight measurement. Litres are a measure of volume.

A litre is 2.11 US pints, or 1.7 imperial pints (UK).

A kilogram is 2.2 lbs.

One litre of water weighs one kilo.
