1 kiloliter (kl) = 100 decaliter (dal). Kiloliter (kl) is a unit of Volume used in Metric system. Decaliter (dal) is a unit of Volume used in Metric system.

## Definition of the Kiloliter

A kiloliter (symbol kl or kL) is a unit of volume that corresponds to one thousand liters (1000 liters) or one cubic meter (1 m3). It is a unit of volume in the metric system, which is based on the meter as the base unit of length.

One kiloliter is equal to 0.001 cubic meters, 61023.744 cubic inches, or 264.172 gallons.

## History of the Kiloliter

The kiloliter is derived from the liter, which is a unit of volume that was introduced in France in 1795 as part of the metric system. The liter was defined as one cubic decimeter (0.1 meter) in length, width, and height. The liter was later redefined as the volume of one kilogram of pure water at its maximum density and standard atmospheric pressure. The current definition of the liter, adopted in 1964, is based on the cubic meter, which is defined as the volume of a cube with sides of one meter in length.

The kiloliter was first used as a unit of volume for measuring large amounts of liquids and gases, such as water, milk, juice, oil, fuel, air, and oxygen. The kiloliter was also used for measuring some solids, such as sugar, salt, and flour. The kiloliter 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 Kiloliters

To convert kiloliters 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 kiloliters to cubic meters, multiply by 0.001.
• Example: 2 kl × 0.001 = 0.002 m3
• To convert kiloliters to cubic inches, multiply by 61023.744.
• Example: 2 kl × 61023.744 = 122047.488 in3
• To convert kiloliters to milliliters or liters, multiply by 1000000 or 1000 respectively.
• Example: 2 kl × 1000000 = 2000000 mL or 2 kl × 1000 = 2000 L
• To convert kiloliters to gallons (US liquid), multiply by 264.172.
• Example: 2 kl × 264.172 = 528.344 gal
• To convert kiloliters to bushels (US), multiply by 28.37825.
• Example: 2 kl × 28.37825 = 56.7565 bu
• To convert kiloliters to barrels (oil), multiply by 6.28981.
• Example: 2 kl × 6.28981 = 12.57962 bbl

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

• To convert cubic meters to kiloliters, divide by 0.001.
• Example: 0.002 m3 ÷ 0.001 = 2 kl
• To convert cubic inches to kiloliters, divide by 61023.744.
• Example: 122047.488 in3 ÷ 61023.744 = 2 kl
• To convert milliliters or liters to kiloliters, divide by 1000000 or 1000 respectively.
• Example: 2000000 mL ÷ 1000000 = 2 kl or 2000 L ÷ 1000 = 2 kl
• To convert gallons (US liquid) to kiloliters, divide by 264.172.
• Example: 528.344 gal ÷ 264.172 = 2 kl
• To convert bushels (US) to kiloliters, divide by 28.37825.
• Example: 56.7565 bu ÷ 28.37825 = 2 kl
• To convert barrels (oil) to kiloliters, divide by 6.28981.
• Example: 12.57962 bbl ÷ 6.28981 = 2 kl

## Where Kiloliters are Used

Kiloliters are used for measuring various materials and substances in different countries and applications.

Some examples are:

• In many countries that use the metric system, kiloliters are used for measuring large amounts of liquids and gases, such as water, milk, juice, soda, beer, wine, oil, fuel, air, and oxygen.
• In some countries that use the imperial system, such as the United States and Canada, kiloliters are used for measuring some liquids and gases, such as water, milk, juice, oil, fuel, air, and oxygen.
• In the agricultural industry, kiloliters are used for measuring the volume of crops, such as grains, fruits, and vegetables.
• In the industrial industry, kiloliters are used for measuring the volume of products, such as chemicals, plastics, and metals.
• In the environmental industry, kiloliters are used for measuring the volume of waste, such as sewage, sludge, and garbage.

## Example Conversions of Kiloliters to Other Units

Here are some example conversions of kiloliters to other units of volume:

• 1 kl = 0.001 m3
• 1 kl = 61023.744 in3
• 1 kl = 1000000 mL or 1000 L
• 1 kl = 264.172 gal
• 1 kl = 28.37825 bu

## 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.
