centiliters (cl) in a liter.

Remember K H D | d c m (kilo, hecto, deka, (liter, meter, gram),
deci, centi, milli). Centiliters are two places to the right of
liters. So you have to move the decimal place twice to the right.
You will get 1 L =100 cL.

100cl

100 litre = 1 litre

10-1 litre = 1 decilitre

**10-2 litre = 1 centilitre = 0.01 liter**

10-3 litre = 1 millilitre

10-6 litre =1 microlitre

In the metric system, the prefix "centi-" means "one hundredth of".
So there are 100 centilitres in 1 litre.

100 cL = 1 L

There are 100 centiliters in one liter.
