## How to convert

1 hectoliter (hl) = 1000 deciliter (dl). Hectoliter (hl) is a unit of Volume used in Metric system. Deciliter (dl) is a unit of Volume used in Metric system.

## Definition of the Hectoliter

A hectoliter is a unit of volume that measures how much space an object or substance occupies. It is equal to 100 liters, or 0.1 cubic meters, or 0.0001 cubic kilometers. One hectoliter can also be written as hL or 105 mL.

## History of the Hectoliter

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

## How to Convert Hectoliters

To convert hectoliters to other units of volume, we need to use conversion factors that relate the hectoliter to the desired unit. For example, to convert hectoliters to gallons, we need to know that one gallon is equal to 3.785 liters. Therefore, one hectoliter is equal to 100 liters, or 26.418 gallons.

Here are some common conversion factors for hectoliters:

• 1 hL = 100 L
• 1 hL = 26.418 US gallons
• 1 hL = 21.997 UK gallons
• 1 hL = 3.531 ft3
• 1 hL = 0.131 yd3
• 1 hL = 0.167 barrels (oil)
• 1 hL = 0.014 acre-feet

To convert from other units of volume to hectoliters, we need to use the inverse of these conversion factors. For example, to convert gallons to hectoliters, we need to divide by 26.418.

## Where Hectoliters are Used

The hectoliter is a unit of volume that is mainly used to measure the volume of liquids such as water, beer, wine and milk. For example, according to Craft Beer & Brewing Magazine, the hectoliter is the major unit of volume used in the brewing industry worldwide1. The annual production of beer in different countries is often reported in hectoliters. According to Wikipedia, the global production of beer in 2019 was about 1.913 billion hectoliters.

The hectoliter 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 wheat in 2020 was about 765 million hectoliters.

## Example Conversions of Hectoliters to Other Units

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

• 2 hL = 2 x 100 L = 200 L
• 3 hL = 3 x 26.418 US gallons = 79.254 US gallons
• 4 hL = 4 x 21.997 UK gallons = 87.988 UK gallons
• 5 hL = 5 x 3.531 ft3 = 17.655 ft3
• 6 hL = 6 x 0.131 yd3 = 0.786 yd3
• 7 hL = 7 x 0.167 barrels (oil) = 1.169 barrels (oil)
• 8 hL = 8 x 0.014 acre-feet = 0.112 acre-feet

## Conclusion

The hectoliter is a unit of volume that is equal to 100 liters, or one tenth 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 hectoliters to other units of volume, we need to use conversion factors that relate the hectoliter to the desired unit.

## 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.
