How to convert

1 decaliter (dal) = 10000 milliliter (ml). Decaliter (dal) is a unit of Volume used in Metric system. Milliliter (ml) 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 Milliliter

A milliliter (international spelling) or milliliter (American English spelling) (SI symbol mL or ml) is a unit of volume that is used in the metric system. It is defined as one thousandth of a liter, or the volume of a cube with sides of 1 millimeter (0.001 meter) in length.

One milliliter is equal to 1 cubic centimeter, 0.000001 cubic meters, or 0.001 cubic decimeters.

History of the Milliliter

The milliliter 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 milliliter was introduced as a subunit of the liter in the metric system in 1795, along with other decimal subunits such as the centiliter and the deciliter. The milliliter was used for measuring very small volumes of liquids and gases, such as medicine, perfume, ink, and blood. The milliliter was also used for measuring some solids, such as granulated sugar, salt, and flour. The milliliter 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 Milliliters

To convert milliliters 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 milliliters to cubic centimeters, multiply by 1.
• Example: 2 mL × 1 = 2 cm3
• To convert milliliters to cubic meters, multiply by 0.000001.
• Example: 2 mL × 0.000001 = 0.000002 m3
• To convert milliliters to cubic decimeters, multiply by 0.001.
• Example: 2 mL × 0.001 = 0.002 dm3
• To convert milliliters to gallons (US liquid), multiply by 0.000264.
• Example: 2 mL × 0.000264 = 0.000528 gal
• To convert milliliters to bushels (US), multiply by 0.0000374.
• Example: 2 mL × 0.0000374 = 0.0000748 bu
• To convert milliliters to barrels (oil), multiply by 0.0000063.
• Example: 2 mL × 0.0000063 = 0.0000126 bbl

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

• To convert cubic centimeters to milliliters, divide by 1.
• Example: 2 cm3 ÷ 1 = 2 mL
• To convert cubic meters to milliliters, divide by 0.000001.
• Example: 0.000002 m3 ÷ 0.000001 = 2 mL
• To convert cubic decimeters to milliliters, divide by 0.001.
• Example: 0.002 dm3 ÷ 0.001 = 2 mL
• To convert gallons (US liquid) to milliliters, divide by 0.000264.
• Example: 0.000528 gal ÷ 0.000264 = 2 mL
• To convert bushels (US) to milliliters, divide by 0.0000374.
• Example: 0.0000748 bu ÷ 0.0000374 = 2 mL
• To convert barrels (oil) to milliliters, divide by 0.0000063.
• Example: 0.0000126 bbl ÷ 0.0000063 = 2 mL
