Resources Inside out Learn mathematics Book 6, pages 47 containers, buckets, Gallon, bottles. INTRODUCTION TO CAPACITY MEASURES The quantity of liquid a container can hold is known as capacity of the container. For example the amount of water a keg or gallon can hold is the capacity of the keg.

CONVERSION OF UNITS OF CAPACITY There are various units for measuring the capacity or volume of liquid. The basic ones are the liters (l) and the Milliliter (ml). Great capacities are measured in liters while small capacities are measure in cubic centimeter (cm³) or milliliters TABLE OF CAPACITY MEASURES 10 milliliters (ml) = 1 centiliter (cl) 10 cl = 1 deciliter (dl) 10 dl = 1 liter (l) 1000 ml = 1 liter 100 cl = 1 liter 1000 l = 1 kiloliter (kl)
