## How to convert

1 decaliter (dal) = 1000 centiliter (cl). Decaliter (dal) is a unit of Volume used in Metric system. Centiliter (cl) is a unit of Volume used in Metric system.

## Definition of the Decaliter

A decaliter is a unit of volume that measures how much space an object or substance occupies. It is equal to 10 liters, or 0.01 cubic meters, or 0.00001 cubic kilometers. One decaliter can also be written as daL or 104 mL.

## History of the Decaliter

The decaliter is a metric unit that was derived from the liter, which was first defined in 1795 by the French Academy of Sciences as one thousandth of a cubic meter. The liter was later redefined several times based on different physical standards, such as a platinum-iridium cylinder and a krypton-86 atom. In 1964, the liter was finally defined as a name given to the cubic decimeter, or 0.001 cubic meters.

The decaliter, as well as other metric units of volume, such as the hectoliter and the centiliter, were introduced in the 19th century as part of the decimal system of measurement that aimed to simplify and unify the units used in science and commerce. The decaliter was officially adopted by the International System of Units (SI) in 1960 as one of the seven base units.

## How to Convert Decaliters

To convert decaliters to other units of volume, we need to use conversion factors that relate the decaliter to the desired unit. For example, to convert decaliters to gallons, we need to know that one gallon is equal to 3.785 liters. Therefore, one decaliter is equal to 10 liters, or 2.642 gallons.

Here are some common conversion factors for decaliters:

• 1 daL = 10 L
• 1 daL = 2.642 US gallons
• 1 daL = 2.2 UK gallons
• 1 daL = 0.353 ft3
• 1 daL = 0.013 yd3
• 1 daL = 0.017 barrels (oil)
• 1 daL = 0.001 acre-feet

To convert from other units of volume to decaliters, we need to use the inverse of these conversion factors. For example, to convert gallons to decaliters, we need to divide by 2.642.

## Where Decaliters are Used

The decaliter is a unit of volume that is mainly used to measure the volume of liquids such as water, beer, wine and milk. The decaliter is more common as a unit of measurement in industry, science and medicine than in everyday use.

The decaliter is also used to measure the volume of some agricultural products such as grains, fruits and vegetables. For example, according to Statista, the global production of rice in 2020 was about 504 million decaliters.

## Example Conversions of Decaliters to Other Units

Here are some examples of how to convert decaliters to other units of volume using the conversion factors given above:

• 2 daL = 2 x 10 L = 20 L
• 3 daL = 3 x 2.642 US gallons = 7.926 US gallons
• 4 daL = 4 x 2.2 UK gallons = 8.8 UK gallons
• 5 daL = 5 x 0.353 ft3 = 1.765 ft3
• 6 daL = 6 x 0.013 yd3 = 0.078 yd3
• 7 daL = 7 x 0.017 barrels (oil) = 0.119 barrels (oil)
• 8 daL = 8 x 0.001 acre-feet = 0.008 acre-feet

## Conclusion

The decaliter is a unit of volume that is equal to 10 liters, or one hundredth of a cubic meter. It is mainly used to measure the volume of liquids such as water, beer, wine and milk, as well as some agricultural products such as grains, fruits and vegetables. To convert decaliters to other units of volume, we need to use conversion factors that relate the decaliter to the desired unit.

## 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.
