UNITS of DRINK (Worldwide)
For more detailed instructions see Additional Information below.

When AbV of liquid is%
and *standard value* used is that of
then a quantity of
of that liquid contains unit drinks
Show value to . . . significant figures.

The *standard value* of a unit of alcohol in
is grams or mL

NO guarantee as to the accuracy of these values is given.
And they should be checked against some other source.
Additional Information
The purpose of this calculator is to find how many units of alcohol exist in a given quantity of liquid when its AbV (% alcohol by volume) is known, and expressing this as units of drink (aka *standard drinks*) according to the country selected. There is a separate calculator to help in finding the AbV if it is given in some other form.
It is only a matter of keying in the AbV value, and the numerical value of the size of the quantity, adjusting the type of measure and country (where necessary) and clicking on [Calculate It].
There are other ways of using this calculator, but those can easily be found by experiment.

Clearly an AbV of over 100% cannot exist. An attempt to produce such a value will generate a warning message. To see this, try putting in a quantity of 1 cL and 10 units.
This calculator deals with 16 different countries having 11 different *standards*. An overview of this situation is given in the General Notes and there is also a calculator for Changing Values between countries.

The significant figures option should not be needed (the default value of 3 being adequate for all this work) but is there *just in case*.
Whatever the setting, unvalued zeros are not shown.
