Online calculators to convert milliliters to centiliters (mL to cL) and centiliters to milliliters (cL to mL) with formulas, examples, and tables. Our conversions provide a quick and easy way to convert between Volume units.
Enter your value in one of the conversion calculators below to convert mL to cL or convert cL to mL.
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
Next, let's look at some examples showing the work and calculations that are involved in converting from milliliters to centiliters (mL to cL) or converting from centiliters to milliliters (cL to mL).
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
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
For quick reference purposes, below are conversion tables that you can use to convert from mL to cL, and cL to mL.
