Measurement of Capacity: Addition with Conversion
Adding a capacity in Liters or Milliliters is same as adding any
other measurement!
We always add the capacities with the same unit together, and
then convert to any other unit if we want.
For Example: Add 20 L and 15 L and give your answer in ‘mL’.
Solution:
we can add the Ls first and then convert in milliLitres in the end or we can
convert to mL individually first and then add to get the desired result.
20 L + 15 L = (20+15) L = 35 L
=(35X1000) mL
Since 1L = 1000mL
= 35,000 mL
Similarly, when compound units are involved we group the same
units together, add them and then do conversion, if required.
For Example: Add 2L 20mL &amp; 3L 32mL and give your answer in
‘mL’.
Solution:
2L 20mL = (2x1000) + 20 mL = 2020 mL
Since 1L = 1000mL
3L 32mL = (3x1000) + 32 mL = 3032 mL
2L 20mL + 3L 32mL = (2020 + 3032) mL = 5052 mL
