It has 33 l of water. How much more water can it hold? Convert 612.112 kl to hl and l. 3. Lily bought 1 oil bottle of 2 l. She used 250 ml of oil to cook food. How much oil is left in the bottle? Write 16 l in dl and cl.### Measurement of Capacity

The maximum amount that something can hold is called capacity. The standard unit of capacity is liter. Milliliter, centiliter , deciliter are smaller unit used to measure smaller capacity, liter is commonly used to measure capacity, whereas units like decaliter, hectoliter and kiloliter are used to measure larger capacity. All these units are related to each other.

__According to the capacity conversion charts, units of capacities and their equivalents are:__1 kiloliter (kl) = 10 Hectoliters (hl) = 1000 l

1 Hectoliter (hl) = 10 Decaliters (dal) = 100 l

1 Decaliter (dal) = 10 Liters (l)

1 Liter (l) = 10 Deciliters (dl) = 100 cl = 1000 ml

1 Deciliter (dl) = 10 Centiliters (cl)

1 Deciliter = 0.1 Liter

1 Centiliter (cl) = 10 Milliliters (ml)

1 Centiliter = 0.01 Liter

1 Milliliter = 0.001 Liter

Conversion

**While converting from a larger unit to a smaller unit, we multiply**__Example 1:__kl → l1 kl = 1000 l

Therefore, 3.1 kl = 3 x 1000 = 3100 l

__Example 2:__l → ml1 l = 1000 ml

Therefore, 4 l = 4 x 1000 = 4000 ml

**While converting from a smaller unit to a larger unit, we divide**__Example 1:__l → kl1 l = 1/1000 kl

Therefore, 10 l = 10/1000 kl = 0.010 kl

__Example 2:__ml → l1 ml = 1/1000 l

Therefore, 3 ml = 3/1000 l = 0.003 l
