Conversion Formulas

Let's take a closer look at the conversion formulas so that you can do these conversions yourself with a calculator or with an old-fashioned pencil and paper.

The formula to convert from mL to cL is:

cL = mL x 0.1

The formula to convert from cL to mL is:

mL = cL x 10

Conversion Examples

Next, let's look at some examples showing the work and calculations that are involved in converting between milliliters (mL) and centiliters (cL).

Milliliter to Centiliter Conversion Example

Task: Convert 125 milliliters to centiliters (show work)

Formula:
mL x 0.1 = cL

Calculations:
125 mL x 0.1 = 12.5 cL

Result:
125 mL is equal to 12.5 cL

Centiliter to Milliliter Conversion Example

Task: Convert 54 centiliters to milliliters (show work)

Formula:
cL x 10 = mL

Calculations:
54 cL x 10 = 540 mL

Result:
54 cL is equal to 540 mL
