How to convert fluid ounces (US) to liters (fl oz to l)

The formula for converting fluid ounces (US) to liters is: l = fl oz × 0.0295735295623627. To calculate the fluid ounce (US) value in liters first substitute the fluid ounce (US) value into the preceding formula, and then perform the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 fluid ounce (US) in liters we follow these steps:

l = fl oz × 0.0295735295623627

l = 1 × 0.0295735295623627

l = 0.0295735295623627

In other words, 1 fluid ounce (US) is equal to 0.0295735295623627 liters.

Example Conversion

Let's take a look at an example. The step-by-step process to convert 4 fluid ounces (US) to liters is:

  1. Understand the conversion formula: l = fl oz × 0.0295735295623627
  2. Substitute the required value. In this case we substitute 4 for fl oz so the formula becomes: l = 4 × 0.0295735295623627
  3. Calculate the result using the provided values. In our example the result is: 4 × 0.0295735295623627 = 0.1182941182494508 l

In summary, 4 fluid ounces (US) is equal to 0.1182941182494508 liters.

Converting liters to fluid ounces (US)

In order to convert the other way around i.e. liters to fluid ounces (US), you would use the following formula: fl oz = l × 33.814022702. To convert liters to fluid ounces (US) first substitute the liter value into the above formula, and then execute the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 liter in fluid ounces (US) we follow these steps:

fl oz = l × 33.814022702

f1 oz = l × 33.814022702

fl oz = 33.814022702

Or in other words, 1 liter is equal to 33.814022702 fluid ounces (US).

Conversion Unit Definitions

What is a Fluid Ounce (US)?

A fluid ounce is a unit of volume commonly used to measure the volume of liquids. It is part of both the US customary system and the British imperial system of units, although the measurements differ slightly between the two systems.
In the US customary system, a fluid ounce (abbreviated as "fl oz") is defined as 1/128th of a US gallon, which is approximately equal to 29.57 milliliters. In the British imperial system, a fluid ounce is defined as 1/160th of an imperial gallon, which is approximately equal to 28.41 milliliters.
Common uses of fluid ounces include:
  1. Beverage Serving Sizes: In the United States, fluid ounces are commonly used to indicate serving sizes for beverages such as water, soda, juice, and alcohol. For example, a standard can of soda typically contains 12 fluid ounces, while a bottle of water may have 16.9 fluid ounces.

  2. Cooking and Baking: Fluid ounces are often used in recipes, especially in the United States, to measure ingredients like water, milk, oil, or other liquids. Many measuring cups and spoons include markings for fluid ounces to assist in accurate measurement.

  3. Personal Care Products: Fluid ounces are used on packaging for personal care products like shampoo, conditioner, body wash, lotions, and other cosmetics. These measurements help consumers understand the volume or quantity of the product they are purchasing.

  4. Medications and Pharmaceuticals: Fluid ounces are sometimes used to measure liquid medications, cough syrups, or other pharmaceutical products. The instructions on the packaging often indicate dosages in fluid ounces or milliliters.

  5. Bartending: In the context of bartending and mixology, fluid ounces are used to measure and mix various ingredients in cocktails and other beverages. Bartenders often use jiggers or measuring tools to precisely pour specific amounts of liquid in fluid ounces.

It's important to note that the specific uses of fluid ounces can vary depending on the country and the industry. The above examples highlight some of the common applications where fluid ounces are utilized for measuring liquid volumes.

What is a Liter?

A litre (also spelled liter) is a metric unit of volume equal to one cubic decimetre (dm3), 1000 cubic centimetres (cm3) or 0.001 cubic metre (m3). A cubic decimetre (or litre) occupies a volume of 10 cm × 10 cm × 10 cm (see figure) and is thus equal to one-thousandth of a cubic metre.
The litre is the base unit of volume in the metric system. It is used to measure the volume of liquids, gases, and solids. For example, a litre of water is equal to about 1.76 US pints or 2.11 UK pints.
The litre is also used to measure the capacity of containers, such as bottles, cans, and jugs. For example, a 2-litre bottle of soda contains 2 litres of soda.
The litre is a very common unit of measurement in many countries around the world. It is used in both the metric and imperial systems of measurement.
Here are some examples of how the litre is used in everyday life:
  • A litre of milk is enough to make about 2 cups of cereal.
