Deciliters: A Unit of Volume

Definition of the Deciliter

A deciliter is a unit of volume that measures how much space an object or substance occupies. It is equal to 0.1 liters, or 0.0001 cubic meters, or 0.0000001 cubic kilometers. One deciliter can also be written as dL or 100 mL.

History of the Deciliter

The deciliter 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 deciliter, as well as other metric units of volume, such as the centiliter and the milliliter, 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 deciliter was officially adopted by the International System of Units (SI) in 1960 as one of the seven base units.

How to Convert Deciliters

To convert deciliters to other units of volume, we need to use conversion factors that relate the deciliter to the desired unit. For example, to convert deciliters to ounces, we need to know that one ounce is equal to 0.0296 liters. Therefore, one deciliter is equal to 0.1 liters, or 3.381 ounces.

Here are some common conversion factors for deciliters:

  • 1 dL = 0.1 L
  • 1 dL = 3.381 US fluid ounces
  • 1 dL = 3.52 UK fluid ounces
  • 1 dL = 0.035 ft3
  • 1 dL = 0.001 yd3
  • 1 dL = 0.002 barrels (oil)
  • 1 dL = 0.00001 acre-feet

To convert from other units of volume to deciliters, we need to use the inverse of these conversion factors. For example, to convert ounces to deciliters, we need to divide by 3.381.

Where Deciliters are Used

The deciliter is a unit of volume that is mainly used to measure the volume of liquids such as water, beer, wine and milk. For example, the deciliter is a metric unit of volume equal to one tenth of a liter.

The deciliter is also used to measure the volume of some medical substances such as blood and urine. For example, high total cholesterol is anything 240 milligrams per deciliter (mg/dL) or higher.

Example Conversions of Deciliters to Other Units

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

  • 2 dL = 2 x 0.1 L = 0.2 L
  • 3 dL = 3 x 3.381 US fluid ounces = 10.143 US fluid ounces
  • 4 dL = 4 x 3.52 UK fluid ounces = 14.08 UK fluid ounces
  • 5 dL = 5 x 0.035 ft3 = 0.175 ft3
  • 6 dL = 6 x 0.001 yd3 = 0.006 yd3
  • 7 dL = 7 x 0.002 barrels (oil) = 0.014 barrels (oil)
  • 8 dL = 8 x 0.00001 acre-feet = 0.00008 acre-feet

Conclusion

The deciliter is a unit of volume that is equal to one tenth of a liter, 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 medical substances such as blood and urine. To convert deciliters to other units of volume, we need to use conversion factors that relate the deciliter to the desired unit.

Milliliters - A Unit of Volume

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

Where Milliliters are Used
