If I have a rucksack with a capacity of 80 litres, how much would this be in kilograms? I'm wondering because I'm camping with scouts and the maximum weight I'm allowed is 15kg...this is confusing heh I suppose it would just be simpler to weigh the bag after I've packed it...

It depends on what you put in it. You can't convert litres into kilograms because they measure different things.

Just weigh the bag after you've put your stuff in it.

Wtf, dont even know what you're trying to say. Litres measures volume, and Kilograms measures weight....

You're maximum weight is wrong I think. It should be something similar to 55/65kg.

It would depend on the weight of the things you put in! 80L bag full of feathers would weigh more than 80L bag full of lead!

You're right - put what you need in, then weigh it!

If you were to put 80 litres of gold in there, it'd weigh around 1760 kg =P.

Like everyone has said, you can't really say what 80 litres in kilograms is because it depends because things can have the same volume (litres) but have a different mass (kilograms). A sleeping bag will probably take up quite a bit of room and won't be too heavy, as will spare clothes. Just weigh it once you've packed it to check if it's less than 15kg.

A kilo(gram) is a measure of mass . . .

Thanks everyone! I knew I was making this more complicated than it possibly could be.
