Fluid ounces and liters
What are a fluid ounce and a liter? And what are the US and Imperial fluid ounces?
Let's find out.
A fluid ounce and liter are both units of volume.
A fluid ounce (abbreviated as fl oz) is a measure of volume in the United States customary and Imperial systems. So it is used to measure liquid ingredients, sometimes called wet ingredients.
US fluid ounce equals 1/128 US gallon, 1/32 US quart, 1/16 US pint, ⅛ US cup, 2 US tablespoons, or 6 US teaspoons.
Imperial fluid ounce equals 0.00625 Imperial gallon, 1/40 Imperial quart, 1/20 Imperial pint, 1/10 Imperial cup, 1.6 Imperial tablespoons, or 4.8 Imperial teaspoons.
You shouldn't confuse two types of ounces - fluid ounces with dry ounces (aka weight ounces) used to measure dry ingredients.
A liter (abbreviated as l, L, or ℓ) is a metric system volume unit. It sometimes has a spelling as a litre.
So what is a liter value? A liter is the volume of one kilogram of water and is equal to 1 cubic decimeter, 1000 cubic cm, 0.001 cubic meters, or 1e-9 cubic hectometer.
