Centiliters - A Unit of Volume

Definition of the Centiliter

A centiliter (international spelling) or centiliter (American English spelling) (SI symbols cL or cl) is a unit of volume that is used in the metric system. It is defined as one hundredth of a liter, or the volume of a cube with sides of 1 centimeter (0.01 meter) in length.

One centiliter is equal to 10 cubic centimeters, 0.00001 cubic meters, or 0.01 cubic decimeters.

History of the Centiliter

The centiliter is derived from the liter, which is a unit of volume that was first used by the French chemist Antoine Lavoisier in 1795 as a unit of volume for liquids and gases. The liter was originally defined as the volume of one kilogram of pure water at 4 °C and standard atmospheric pressure. The liter was later redefined several times based on different physical standards, such as a platinum-iridium cylinder and a wavelength of light. The current definition of the liter, adopted in 1964, is based on the cubic meter, which is the SI unit of volume. The liter is not an SI unit, but it is accepted by the CGPM (the standards body that defines the SI) for use with the SI.

The centiliter was introduced as a subunit of the liter in the metric system in 1795, along with other decimal subunits such as the deciliter and the milliliter. The centiliter was used for measuring small volumes of liquids and gases, such as wine, beer, milk, oil, and air. The centiliter was also used for measuring some solids, such as sugar, flour, and salt. The centiliter was adopted as a standard unit of measure in many countries that use the metric system, such as France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and Sweden.

How to Convert Centiliters

To convert centiliters to other units of volume, you need to multiply or divide by the appropriate conversion factor. Here are some common conversion factors and examples:

  • To convert centiliters to cubic centimeters, multiply by 10.
    • Example: 2 cL x 10 = 20 cm3
  • To convert centiliters to cubic meters, multiply by 0.00001.
    • Example: 2 cL x 0.00001 = 0.00002 m3
  • To convert centiliters to cubic decimeters, multiply by 0.01.
    • Example: 2 cL x 0.01 = 0.02 dm3
  • To convert centiliters to gallons (US liquid), multiply by 0.00264.
    • Example: 2 cL x 0.00264 = 0.00528 gal
  • To convert centiliters to bushels (US), multiply by 0.000374.
    • Example: 2 cL x 0.000374 = 0.000748 bu
  • To convert centiliters to barrels (oil), multiply by 0.000063.
    • Example: 2 cL x 0.000063 = 0.000126 bbl

To convert other units of volume to centiliters, you need to divide by the appropriate conversion factor. Here are some common conversion factors and examples:

  • To convert cubic centimeters to centiliters, divide by 10.
    • Example: 20 cm3 / 10 = 2 cL
  • To convert cubic meters to centiliters, divide by 0.00001.
    • Example: 0.00002 m3 / 0.00001 = 2 cL
  • To convert cubic decimeters to centiliters, divide by 0.01.
    • Example: 0.02 dm3 / 0.01 = 2 cL
  • To convert gallons (US liquid) to centiliters, divide by 0.00264.
    • Example: 0.00528 gal / 0.00264 = 2 cL
  • To convert bushels (US) to centiliters, divide by 0.000374.
    • Example: 0.000748 bu / 0.000374 = 2 cL
  • To convert barrels (oil) to centiliters, divide by 0.000063.
    • Example: 0.000126 bbl / 0.000063 = 2 cL

Where Centiliters are Used

Centiliters are used for measuring various materials and substances in different countries and applications.

Some examples are:

  • In many European countries, such as France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and Sweden, centiliters are used for measuring alcoholic beverages, such as wine, beer, and spirits. For example, a standard glass of wine is usually 10 or 12 centiliters, a bottle of beer is usually 25 or 33 centiliters, and a shot of liquor is usually 2 or 4 centiliters.
  • In some Scandinavian countries, such as Norway and Denmark, centiliters are used for measuring milk and cream. For example, a carton of milk is usually 100 or 200 centiliters, and a cup of coffee is usually served with 1 or 2 centiliters of cream.
  • In some Asian countries, such as Japan and China, centiliters are used for measuring some traditional medicines and herbal teas. For example, a dose of kampo medicine is usually 10 or 20 centiliters, and a cup of green tea is usually 15 or 20 centiliters.
  • In the medical industry, centiliters are used for measuring some fluids and solutions, such as blood plasma, urine, and saline. For example, a unit of blood plasma is usually 20 or 25 centiliters, a urine sample is usually 5 or 10 centiliters, and an intravenous drip is usually set at a rate of 10 or 20 centiliters per hour.
  • In the scientific industry, centiliters are used for measuring some chemical reagents and solvents, such as ethanol, acetone, and water. For example, a flask of ethanol is usually 50 or 100 centiliters, a bottle of acetone is usually 25 or 50 centiliters, and a beaker of water is usually 10 or 20 centiliters.

Cubic Feet - A Unit of Volume

Definition of the Cubic Foot

A cubic foot (symbol ft3 or cu ft) is an imperial and US customary (non-metric) unit of volume, used in the United States and the United Kingdom. It is defined as the volume of a cube with sides of one foot (0.3048 meter) in length.

One cubic foot is equal to 1728 cubic inches, 0.037037 cubic yards, or 0.02831685 cubic meters.

History of the Cubic Foot

The cubic foot is derived from the foot, which is an ancient unit of length that was based on the length of a human foot. The foot was originally divided into 12 inches, and later into 16 digits or 4 palms. The foot was used in many different systems of measurement, such as the Roman, Egyptian, Greek, and English systems. The foot was standardized by King Henry I of England in the 12th century as the length of his own foot. The current definition of the foot, adopted in 1959, is based on the international yard, which is defined as 0.9144 meter.

The cubic foot was first used as a unit of volume for measuring wood in England in the 15th century. It was also used for measuring other materials and substances, such as stone, sand, coal, water, and air. The cubic foot was adopted as a standard unit of measure in the imperial system in 1824, along with other units such as the gallon, the bushel, and the barrel. The cubic foot was also used in the US customary system, which is similar but not identical to the imperial system. The cubic foot is still widely used today for various purposes, such as construction, engineering, commerce, and everyday life.
