Resolution 13 of the 11th CGPM (1960)
Version française
Cubic decimetre and litre

    The 11th Conférence Générale des Poids et Mesures (CGPM),


  • that the cubic decimetre and the litre are unequal and differ by about 28 parts in 106,
  • that determinations of physical quantities which involve measurements of volume are being made more and more accurately, thus increasing the risk of confusion between the cubic decimetre and the litre,
  • requests the Comité International des Poids et Mesures to study the problem and submit its conclusions to the 12th CGPM.
