# 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 liters 2 times 0.25 liters 2 times 250 ml 1 liter 4 times 0.25 liters 4 times 250 ml 1.5 liters 6 times 0.25 liters 6 times 250 ml 2 liters 8 times 0.25 liters 8 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.
