## Hectoliter and Liter

### Hectoliter

A hectoliter (hl) is a unit of volume in the metric system, often used in agriculture, notably in beer brewing and wine production. One hectoliter equals 100 liters, meaning it is a relatively large unit of volume. The term "hectoliter" derives from the Greek word 'hekaton', meaning hundred, and the French word 'litre', a unit of volume.

### Liter

A liter (l) is a standard metric unit of volume often used for measuring liquids and gases. The term "liter" originates from French and was first defined in 1795 as a cubic decimeter. For instance, a liter of water roughly equals the volume of a cube with sides of 10 cm.

### The relationship between hl and l

As mentioned earlier, one hectoliter is equivalent to a hundred liters. This means that you multiply the number of hectoliters by 100 to get the equivalent in liters.

`1 hectoliter = 100 liters`

Conversely, if you divide the number of liters by 100, you get the equivalent in hectoliters.

`1 liter = 0.01 hectoliter`

### Table of volume units

Here is a simple table showing the relationship between hectoliters, liters, and other metric volume units:

Unit Equivalent in liters
1 Milliliter (ml) 0.001 l
1 Centiliter (cl) 0.01 l
1 Deciliter (dl) 0.1 l
1 Liter (l) 1 l
1 Decaliter (dal) 10 l
1 Hectoliter (hl) 100 l
1 Kiloliter (kl) 1000 l
