Liquid Measurement

The liquid measurement is the amount of liquid a vessel contains and its measurement in standard units. We also refer to it as the “capacity” or the “volume” of the vessel.

The Different Tools used for Liquid Measurement are:

  • Measuring Cup & Pitcher: We commonly use the measuring cup and pitcher with markings in the kitchen for adding liquid ingredients in a measured quantity.

Measuring pitcher, cups and spoons with measurement markings in metric and US customary units on the surface.

  • Laboratory Essentials: The liquid measurement equipment such as beakers, graduated cylinder, test tube, conical flasks are used in laboratories for clinical and scientific purposes. With permanent markings in metric and customary, these types of equipment are useful in measuring liquids with precision for carrying out tests with chemicals and other liquid compounds.

Unit Conversion

To convert the mentioned unit to different units, follow the given conversion steps.

Metric unit conversion for different measurements. Let’s convert the quantities to different units using the conversion table. 

   Milliliter  Centiliter  Liter  Kiloliter
 5 Liter  Multiply by 1000 

= 5 × 1000 

= 5000 ml

 Multiply by 100 

= 5 × 100 

= 500 cl 

Given in the same unit 5 l  Divide by 1000 

= 5 ÷ 1000 

= 0.005 kl

 400 Milliliter  Given in the same unit 400ml Divide by 10 

= 400 ÷ 10 

= 40 cl

Divide by 1000 

= 400 ÷ 1000 

= 0.4 l

Divide the value in liters by  1000 

= 0.4 ÷ 1000 

= 0.0004 kl

We follow the given chart for U.S. customary unit conversions

customary unit conversion for different measurements.

An example of using the above chart for unit conversion is:

 U. S. Customary  Cup  Pint  Quart  Gallon
 2000 fl. oz Divide by 8 


= 250 c

Divide the “cup” by 2 

= 250÷2 

= 125 pt

Divide the “pint” by 2 

= 125 ÷ 2 

= 62.5 qt 

Divide the “quart” by 4 

= 62.5 ÷ 4 

= 15.62 gal

We follow the given chart for U.K. Imperial unit conversions

Imperial Unit Conversion for Different Measurements.

Using the above chart, the conversion of a given capacity in different units is illustrated as follows:

 UK Imperial Units  Fluid Ounce  Pint  Quart  Gallon
 40 cups  Multiply by 10 

= 40 × 10 

= 400 fl oz.

Divide by 2 

= 20 ÷ 2 

= 10 qt

Divide the “pint” by 2 

= 20 ÷ 2 

= 10 qt

Divide the “quart” by 4 

= 10 ÷ 4

= 2. 25 gal


The liquid measurement units are commercially used for the trade purpose of commodities such as petrol, water, oil, and others. Standardization of measurement units introduced uniformity for global interpretation of mass and volume of liquids.

Fun Facts
1. Romans used bronze vessels with markings to measure liquids using the unit “sextarius”, equivalent to an imperial pint of 568 ml.
2. Mercury is the only liquid metal.
3. The thickness of a liquid is known as its viscosity. Liquids such as honey, melted chocolate, and mayonnaise are more viscous than oil, water, and milk.

How to measure

The Equipment:

Graduated Measuring Cups

Measuring cups that resemble small pots. They are usually made of plastic or metal and come in sets of four or five (1 cup, 3/4 cup, 1/2 cup, 1/3 cup, and 1/4 cup). They are excellent for measuring dry ingredients because they can easily be leveled off.

Liquid Measuring Cups

Measuring cups that look like little pitchers with a lip/spout to aid in pouring. They are widely available in 1, 2, 4, and 8-cup measures. They come in glass or plastic, with the amounts indicated in cups, ounces, and milliliters. Pyrex is a good brand. The larger measures can double as mixing bowls.

Measuring Spoons

Come in sets of four or five (1 tablespoon, 1 teaspoon, 1/2 teaspoon, 1/4 teaspoon and sometimes 1/8 teaspoon).



Each 1/4 pound stick of margarine or butter measures 1/2 cup or 8 tablespoons. In the United States, the wrapping usually has tablespoons and teaspoons clearly marked. One stick usually equals 1/2 cup. If it has not been packed that way, pack margarine or butter into measuring spoon or measuring cup and level off to measure.


Measuring Sugar

Most sugar can be measured in a graduated measuring cup. Simply spoon it in and level off with the straight edge of a knife. Most recipes usually call for certain amounts of packed brown sugar. To measure packed brown sugar, pack sugar down lightly with back of spoon, then level off.

Measuring Flour

In most recipes, flour is supposed to be measured straight from the canister or package (the flour needs to be airy, if it seems compact, stir it in the container before measuring it). NEVER pack flour down into the measuring cup or tap it excessively. Lightly spoon flour into graduated measuring cup, and level off with straight edge of knife.

It is important to measure flour correctly in low-fat bread making because when we reduce the fat (which tenderizes it), we don’t want to dramatically increase the flour (which toughens it).

Fluke 9103, Fluke 9140 and Fluke 9141 Portable Dry-Wells

At Fluke Calibration, dry-wells are used daily in the manufacturing process, and Fluke Calibration knows what makes a dry-well calibrator efficient and easy to use. And this is in line with how users themselves describe our range of field dry-wells. These devices work for you, not the other way around.

These three models outperform any other dry-well in the same category in terms of performance, size, weight, ease of use, ease of calibration, and price. In addition, the heating and cooling rates of each of these dry-wells are front-panel adjustable, thermal switch activation can be verified, and multi-hole inserts allow calibration of a wide variety of sensor sizes.

Fluke Calibration dry-wells are easy to calibrate. You don’t even need to open the case for this. This reduces device maintenance costs and reduces downtime during calibration.
Interface-it software allows you to set setpoints and ramp rates, save readings to a log file, create electronic strip charts, and perform data-acquisition thermal switch testing. The software runs on Windows and has an excellent user interface. Whatever level of automation you need — basic or complete — we have what you need.
Each dry-well calibrator that we ship is factory tested and includes NIST traceable calibration data. The Calibration Report is free of charge as we consider it an essential component of our quality control program. You do not need to spend additional money on device calibration, which we carry out in any case.

Fluke 9103
Fluke 9 Dry Well Temperature Calibrators103 cover temperature ranges below ambient temperature down to -25 °C. The Fluke 9103 is stable to ±0.02°C and its display is calibrated to ±0.25°C at all temperatures within its operating range. 0°C is reached in just 8 minutes and 100°C in six minutes, so time is spent calibrating rather than waiting.

The Fluke 9103 Temperature Calibrator provides temperatures 50°C below ambient, so -25°C is achieved under normal ambient conditions. Our competitors advertise devices capable of delivering -45°C while referring to values ​​relative to ambient temperature, which in practice means temperatures as low as -20°C are achievable. Our device does not require placing in a freezer to achieve the characteristics indicated in the specifications.
Choose from three removable probe inserts for 1/16″ to 1/2″ gauges. Insert A is compatible with a full range of sensor sizes and contains single wells of each size. Insert B has pairs of 3/8″, 1/4″ and 3/16″ boreholes and is used to perform comparison calibration. Insert C has six 1/4 inch holes for multiple calibrations and insert D has three pairs of metric holes.

Fluke 9140
Fluke 9 Dry-well Temperature Calibrator Temperature Range140 is 35 — 350 °C, while the maximum temperature is reached in 12 minutes. Weighing less than 3 kg, the device is small enough to be carried in one hand. This model is a real innovation among dry-well calibrators.

Instrument stability is at least ±0.05°C, uniformity is at least 0.4°C in the largest boreholes and 0.1°C in smaller boreholes. Despite the small size, the device has all the necessary functions and characteristics.
You can use the built-in display calibrated at ±0.5°C as a temperature reference source or use an external thermometer for maximum calibration accuracy. As well as performance, the 9140 is equally flexible with three removable inserts.

Fluke 9141 (discontinued)
The Fluke 9141 Vertical Dry-well Temperature Calibrator is sure to please. It calibrates up to 650°C, weighs just over 3.5kg and heats up to 650°C in just 12 minutes! This dry-well calibrator has everything you need, except that it has no legs to get to the job site on its own. (Although we are working on such a variant of the device.
