## How to convert

1 cubic foot (cu ft) = 2831.68466 centiliter (cl). Cubic Foot (cu ft) is a unit of Volume used in Standard system. Centiliter (cl) is a unit of Volume used in Metric system.

## 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.

## 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.
