## Where does liter come from?

The liter was defined as one cubic decimetre when it was established in France in 1795 as one of the new "republican units of measurement." Because the gramme was established in 1795 as one cubic centimeter of water at melting ice temperature, one liter of liquid water weighs nearly precisely one kilogramme. The initial decimetre length was 44.344 lignes, which was reduced to 44.3296 lignes in 1798. This gave the first liter 1.000974 cubic decimetres. The kilogramme was built in opposition to the liter.

## Where is the gallon from?

The name stems most directly from galun, galon in Old Norman French, although it was also used in other languages, such as jale in Old French and gÄ™llet (bowl) in Old English. This implies a shared root in Romance Latin, although the word's final derivation is uncertain.

In England, the gallon was the foundation of systems for measuring wine and beer. The gallon sizes employed in these two systems differed: the first was based on the wine gallon (equivalent to the US gallon), and the second on either the ale gallon or the bigger imperial gallon.
