Definition of **kilograms of water** provided by WikiPedia

The kilogram or kilogramme (SI unit symbol: kg), is the base unit of mass in the International System of Units (SI) (the Metric system) and is defined as being equal to the mass of the International Prototype of the Kilogram (IPK).

Definition of **liter of water** provided by Dictionary.com

a unit of capacity redefined in 1964 by a reduction of 28 parts in a million to be exactly equal to one cubic decimeter. It is equivalent to 1.0567 U.S. liquid quarts and is equal to the volume of one kilogram of distilled water at 4°C.

- kg wt. – kilograms of water
- l – liters of water

Hi Yasmin,

The converter is doing the calculations based on water. For other liquids the calculations may be different, depending on the density of the liquid.

The formula is:

`Density = Mass / Volume`

Density of water = 1 g/cc

`1 l = 1000 cc`

So the calculation for water will be:

`1000 cc * 1 g/cc = 1000 g`

1000 g = 1 kg

If we want to calculate for mercury, then we have:

`Density of mercury = 13.6 g/cc`

So the calculation for mercury will be:

`1000 cc * 13.6 g/cc = 13600 g`

13600 g = 13.6 kg

Hope this clarifies the confusion

Hi Dharini,

You have to know the density of the ultrasonic gel to make the conversion.

If you find out the density, then you can apply the formula explained above to Yasmin.
