Measurement conversion tables

Here are some tables of equivalence between various measurements – useful when working with foreign recipes.

First, this is how metric volumes relate to each other:

 1 liter (l) = 10 deciliters
 1 deciliter (dl) = 10 centiliters
 1 centiliter (cl) = 10 milliliters (ml)

One milliliter, then, is one thousandth of a liter.Volume, British measurements:

 1 imperial gallon =   4.55 l
 1 pint =  2 cups =   5.68 dl
 1 cup = 10 Brit. fl. oz =   2.84 dl
 1 British fluid ounce = 28.4 ml

Volume, US measurements:

 1 US gallon = 4 liquid quarts =   3.785 l
 1 liquid quart = 2 liquid pints =   9.5 dl
 1 liquid pint = 2 cups or 16 US fl.oz =   4.73 dl
 1 cup = 8 US fl. oz =   2.37 dl
 1 US fluid ounce = 29.6 ml
 1 dry quart = 2 dry pints =   1.1 l
 1 dry pint =   5.51 dl

Weights

 1 hundred weight (British cwt) = 112 pounds =   50.8 kg
 1 US centerweight (US cwt) = 100 pounds =   45.4 kg
 1 stone =  14 pounds =    6.35 kg
 1 pound (lb) =  16 ounces = 453.6 g (0.45 kg)
 1 ounce (oz) =   28.35 g

In Australia, a cup is 2.5 dl.

In Sweden, tablespoons, teaspoons and the so called spice measure (kryddmått) have metric definitions:

 1 tablespoon = 3 teaspoons = 15 ml (6.7 tablespoons to a dl)
 1 teaspoon = 5 kryddmått =  5 ml
 1 kryddmått
