## How much is a deciliter (dl)?

A deciliter is equivalent to a tenth of a liter. That means: 10 deciliters are a liter. The prefix "Dezi" comes from the Latin ("decimus") and means" tenths ". The abbreviation for deciliters is" dl ".

### Convert Deciliters to ...

Convert deciliters into another volume specification:

Amounts of liquid are measured as volume. The default unit for this is liter, abbreviated with the letter "l" or "ltr". One liter corresponds to the volume of a cube with an edge length of 10 cm on all edges (1 cubic decimeter = 1 dm³). One can also say: a liter is the amount of liquid that fits into a cube of one cubic decimeter. The following graphic illustrates how much a liter, a deciliter, a centiliter and a milliliter are.

An adult human has about 5-6 liters of blood in the body, which corresponds to 50-60 deciliters.
