The kilogram per litre (or kilogram per liter) is a unit of density in the metric system equal to 1,000 kilograms per cubic meter (1 kg/L = 1,000 kg/m3), the derived unit of density in the International System of Units (SI). It is also equal to 1.0 kilogram per cubic decimeter (kg/dm3), or 1,000 grams per cubic decimeter (g/dm3), or 1.0 gram per cubic centimeter (g/cm3), or 1,000 grams per liter (g/L) or 1.0 gram per milliliter (g/mL).

The density of a material expresses the mass of the material per unit of volume. Thus, kilograms per liter (or kilograms/liter) show how many kilograms of material are in a volume of one liter. The kilogram is a unit of mass in the SI while the liter is a unit of volume in the metric system.
