A litre is a volume measurement in the metric system. One litre is equivalent to one kilogramme of water. One litre is equal to 1.0567 liquid US quarts, making the quart significantly larger.
In addition to the dry U.S. quart and U.K. quart, two more quart measurements are frequently recognised. Both British and American dry quarts are slightly smaller than a litre. One litre equals 0.90808 U.S. dry quarts and 0.879888 U.K. dry quarts.
Chefs and culinary students are two groups who may need to convert quarts to litres. Many recipes require precise quantities, therefore cooks must appropriately convert these volume measurements.
