Introduction
The amount of liquid is equal to the internal volume of a container. After all, when we fill this container, the liquid takes the form of it. Capacity It is the internal volume of a container.
The fundamental unit of capacity is called liter. Liter It is the capacity of a cube that has 1dm of edge.
1l = 1dm^{3 }
Multiples and submultiples of the liter
Multiples | Core Unit | Submultiples | ||||
kiloliter | hectoliter | decaliter | liter | deciliter | centiliter | milliliter |
kl | hl | dal | l | dl | cl | ml |
1000l | 100l | 10l | 1l | 0.1l | 0.01l | 0.001l |
Multiples | kiloliter | kl | 1000l |
hectoliter | hl | 100l | |
decaliter | dal | 10l | |
Core Unit | liter | l | 1l |
Submultiples | deciliter | dl | 0.1l |
centiliter | cl | 0.01l | |
milliliter | ml | 0.001l |
Each unit is 10 times larger than the next lower unit.
Relations:
1l = 1dm^{3}
1ml = 1cm^{3}
1kl = 1m^{3}
Reading of capacity measurements
Example: Read the following measurement: 2,478 dal
kl | hl | dal | l | dl | cl | ml |
2, | 4 | 7 | 8 |
It reads "2 decaliters and 478 centiliters".
