What is 1 + 4 0

⭐ In many recipes and cooking instructions, and of course at school and during training, you will often find a quantity of 1/4 liter. Sometimes referred to as 0.25 liters, which is the same as 1/4 l. This amount is common for liquids such as water, milk, broth, beverages and other ingredients.

The volume unit liter is often abbreviated with a small l or a large L as well as ltr. The abbreviations for milliliters are ml or mL.

The conversion factor between milliliters and liters is 1,000. That means: 1,000 ml corresponds to 1 l and 1/4 l (quarter liter) is 250 ml.

? How many milliliters are 1/4 liter?

0.25 liters or 1/4 liter are exactly 250 milliliters.

Less often you will find a conversion to 25 cl (centiliters) and 2.5 dl (deciliters). Likewise, with 1/4 l a conversion to 0.0025 hl (hectoliters) does not make much sense, even if this is possible.

1 liter of water weighs almost exactly 1 kg (kilogram) or 1,000 g (gram) at a mean air pressure on the earth's surface (normal pressure) and 4 ° Celsius. Therefore:

1/4 liter of water weighs 0.25 kg or 250 g

1 liter of water fits into a cube with an edge length of 10 centimeters - i.e. 10 cm * 10 cm * 10 cm. With 250 ml this would result in a cube of approx. 6.3 cm * 6.3 cm * 6.3 cm.

1/4 liter of liquid can also be converted into 0.00025 cubic meters and 250 cubic centimeters.

Conversion between different units of measurement

Any amount of information can be quickly and easily converted into other units of measurement (including the British and American). Please note: A point is used instead of a comma!

? Conversion into the Anglo-American measurement system (customary units)

In the USA, "our" system of measurement with liters, grams and cubic meters is not widely used. The Anglo-American system of measurement, originally from medieval England, is used here.

¼ liters (250 ml) correspond to:

  • approx. 8.5 us fl.oz. (fluid ounce, ƒ℥; US American fluid ounce)
  • approx. 1 cu (cup; US cup, cup)
  • approx. 0.53 pt. (pint; US American pint)
  • approx. 0.26 qt. (quart; US fourth)
  • 0.066 gal (gallon)
  • approx. 17 tablespoon (US tablespoon)
  • approx. 51 teaspoon (US American teaspoons)

? Conversion into the English measurement system (imperial units)

In principle, Great Britain had already committed itself in 1973 to converting to the metric system and thus to establish a uniform European system of measurements. Among the population, however, not only in Great Britain - but also in the former British colonies Canada, Australia, India, etc. - the "old measures" are in everyday use.

1/4 liter (250 ml) corresponds to:

  • approx. 8.8 fl.oz. (fluid ounce, ƒ℥; English fluid ounce)
  • approx. 0.88 cu (cup; cup, cup)
  • approx. 0.44 fl.pt. (pt, pint; English pint)
  • approx. 0.22 qt. (quart; English quart)
  • approx. 0.055 gal. (gallon)
  • approx. 14 tablespoon (British tablespoon)
  • approx. 42 teaspoon (British teaspoons)

Measure out 1/4 liter without a measuring cup

If there is no measuring cup available, you can also make do with a drink glass for lemonades, juices or beer. Here you can often find sizes of 1/4 liter, which are marked accordingly on the upper edge of the glass.

Even with a 0.5 liter glass, 0.25 l can be measured out. Simply fill the large glass up to the 0.5 l mark and then divide this amount evenly into two identical glasses or mugs. So you get 2 times 1/4 liter.

0.5 liters2 times 0.25 liters2 times 250 ml
1 liter4 times 0.25 liters4 times 250 ml
1.5 liters6 times 0.25 liters6 times 250 ml
2 liters8 times 0.25 liters8 times 250 ml

Of course, 1/4 l of liquid can also be weighed very precisely with kitchen scales. Simply weigh 250 grams (plus the weight of the container) and you're done.
