## Capacity Measurement Examples

**Example 1.**

A jar has a capacity of 45 liters. The capacity in milliliters is?

**Solution:**

Given that,

A jar has a capacity of 45 liters.

We know that,

1 liter = 1000 millilitres

45 litres = 1000 × 45 = 45000 millilitres.

Thus the capacity of a jar in milliliters is 45,000ml.

**Example 2.**

5 liters 2 milliliters equal to how many milliliters?

**Solution:**

We have to convert from liters to milliliters.

1 litre = 1000 milliliters

5 litre = 5000 milliliters

5 litre 2 milliliters= 5002 milliliters

**Example 3.**

8 liters equal to how many milliliters?

**Solution:**

We have to convert from liters to milliliters.

1 litre = 1000 milliliters

8 litres = 8 × 1000 milliliters = 8000 milliliters

**Example 4.**

A petrol tank has a capacity of 35 liters. The capacity in milliliters is?

**Solution:**

Given,

A petrol tank has a capacity of 35 liters.

The petrol tank has a capacity = 35 liters

Here we have to convert from liters to milliliters by using the measuring chart.

1 litre = 1000 milliliters

35 litres = 35 × 1000 = 35000 milliliters

Thus the capacity of a petrol tank in milliliters is 35,000.

**Example 5.**

Somu used 4000 milliliters of milk to prepare a sweet the milk used in liters is?

**Solution:**

Somu used milk to prepare a sweet = 4000 milliliters

Here we have to convert from liters to milliliters by using the measuring chart.

1 litre = 1000 millilitres

4000 millilitres = 4 litres

Thus the conversion of 4000 milliliters to liters is 4.

**Example 6.**

Divya has 1800 milliliters of a water bottle the capacity in liters is?

**Solution:
**Given,

Divya has a water bottle = 1800 milliliters

Here we have to convert from liters to milliliters by using the measuring chart.

1 litre = 1000 millilitres

1800 milliliters = 1 liter 800 milliliters.

**Example 7.**

Raju has 2 containers with 1 liter and 4 liters. How many liters that the Raju had and convert them to milliliters?

**Solution:**

Given,

Raju has 2 containers with 1 liter and 4 liters.

Raju has a 2 containers = 1 + 4 = 5 litres

Raju has a total of 5 liters

Here we have to convert from liters to milliliters by using the measuring chart.

1 liter = 1000 milliliters

5 litres = 5000 millilitres

**Example 8.**

Ramya has 2 liters of juice convert it into milliliters.

**Solution:**

Given,

Ramya has 2 liters of juice

We have to convert from liters to milliliters.

1 liter = 1000 ml

2 litres = 2 × 1000 = 2000 millilitres

**Example 9.**

Convert 10000 milliliters to liters?

**Solution:
**Here we have to convert from liters to milliliters by using the measuring chart.

1 litres = 1000 milliliters

10000 milliliters= 10 litres

**Example 10.**

Convert 4 liters into milliliters?

**Solution:
**Here we have to convert from liters to milliliters by using the measuring chart.

1 litre = 1000 milliliters

4 litres = 4000 milliliters

**Example 11.**

Convert 4 quarts = ___ pints

**Solution:**

By using the measuring capacity chart we know that

1 quart = 2 pints

4 quarts = 4 × 2 pints = 8 pints

Therefore 4 quarts = 8 pints

**Example 12.**

4 pints = ___ cups

**Solution:**

By using the measuring capacity chart we know that

1 pint = 2 cups

4 pints = 4 × 2 cups = 8 cups

Therefore 4 pints = 8 cups.
