    Litre to m^3 is easy, there are 1000 l in a m^3
    To convert moles to mass you have to know the mass of the substance you are dealing with.
    1 mole of Hydrogen is 0.002 kg, 1 mole of plutonium is 0.24 kg

    you need the molar mass in g/mol or however it is measured.

    What is the volume of 1 litre in SI units?

    Hint: 1 cm3 = 1 mL

    The molar mass of the substance is 116.95 lbm/lbmol or kg/kmol.
