## How to convert

1 centiliter (cl) = 0.610237441 cubic inch (cu in). Centiliter (cl) is a unit of Volume used in Metric system. Cubic Inch (cu in) is a unit of Volume used in Standard system.

## 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:

• 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.

## Definition of the Cubic Inch

A cubic inch (symbol in3 or cu in) is a unit of volume in the imperial and US customary (non-metric) units systems. It is the volume of a cube with each of its three dimensions (length, width, and height) being one inch (0.0254 meter) in length.

One cubic inch is equal to 0.000578704 cubic feet, 0.037037 cubic yards, or 0.016387064 liters.

## History of the Cubic Inch

The cubic inch is derived from the inch, which is an ancient unit of length that was based on the length of a human thumb. The inch was originally divided into 12 lines, and later into 16 digits or 4 barleycorns. The inch was used in many different systems of measurement, such as the Roman, Anglo-Saxon, English, and Scottish systems. The inch was standardized by King Edward II of England in 1324 as the length of three barleycorns laid end to end. The current definition of the inch, adopted in 1959, is based on the international yard, which is defined as 0.9144 meter.

The cubic inch was first used as a unit of volume for measuring solid objects in England in the 14th century. It was also used for measuring other materials and substances, such as wood, stone, metal, water, and air. The cubic inch 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 inch was also used in the US customary system, which is similar but not identical to the imperial system. The cubic inch is still widely used today for various purposes, such as engineering, commerce, and everyday life.
