## Centiliter and Liter

A liter (l) and a centiliter (cl) are both units of measurement used to indicate volume, particularly in the metric system which is the most used internationally.

### What is a Liter?

The liter is a non-SI unit of volume. It is defined as the volume of a cube where each side measures 10 cm, which is equal to 1 cubic decimeter (dm³). The liter is used in many situations to indicate content, such as in the food industry and in the sale of liquids such as gasoline or water.

A common example of a liter is a bottle of soda or water. Most of these bottles have a capacity of 1 liter.

### What is a Centiliter?

A centiliter is a hundredth of a liter. The name comes from the Latin word 'centum', which means hundred. The unit is indicated by the symbol 'cl'.

An example of an object with a volume of about 1 centiliter is a sugar cube.
