litre

The litre or liter is an SI accepted metric system unit of volume equal to 1 cubic decimetre, 1,000 cubic centimetres or 1/1,000 cubic metre. A cubic decimetre occupies a volume of 10 cm×10 cm×10 cm and is thus equal to one-thousandth of a cubic metre. The original French metric system used the litre as a base unit.
