Capacity is the total amount of fluid that can be contained in a container. This is used to measure the liquids like milk, water, etc. There are times when you will need to combine measurements that are given in different units. In the case of decimals, we have to divide times as that of the given units. Let us learn the use of decimal in measuring capacity.

We know that,

1 liter = 1000 milliliters

1 ml = 1/1000 liter

1 milliliter = 0.001 liter

### Usage of Decimal in Measurement of Capacity Examples

Step-by-step explanations for all the questions on measuring the capacity are given by the math experts in order to clarify your doubts. So, the students who are looking for the 4th Grade Math can make use of this page and practice the problems on the use of decimals in measuring the capacity.

**Example 1.**

Convert 12l 300ml into liters in the decimal form

**Solution:
**We have to convert the given capacity into the decimal form

As we already know that

1000millilitres = 1 litre or 1000m = 1l

So, 1ml is the thousandths of a liter

1ml = 1/1000 = 0.001 l

300millilitres = 300/1000 = 0.300l

12l 300ml = 12.300ml

Thus 12l 300ml into liters in the decimal form is 12.300 ml

**Example 2.**

Convert 34l 230ml into liters in the decimal form

**Solution:**

We have to convert the given capacity into the decimal form

As we already know that

1000millilitres = 1 litre or 1000m = 1l

So, 1ml is the thousandths of a liter

1ml = 1/1000 = 0.001 l

230 ml = 230/1000 = 0.230l

34l 230ml = 34.230l

Thus 34l 230ml into liters in the decimal form is 34.230 liters.

Children start learning about capacity at the primary level. In addition to the capacity, you can also learn about decimals in measuring length, money, mass in 4th grade math. This is one place to get detailed information on all the 4th-grade topics. So, make our page a reference to practice different types of problems.

**Example 3.**

Convert 1l 30ml into liters in the decimal form

**Solution:**

We have to convert the given capacity into the decimal form

As we already know that

1000millilitres = 1 litre or 1000m = 1l

So, 1ml is the thousandths of a liter

1ml = 1/1000 = 0.001 l

30ml = 30/1000 = 0.030 l

1l 30ml = 1.030l

Thus, 1l 30ml into liters in the decimal form is 1.030 liters.

**Example 4.**

Convert 82l 13ml into liters in the decimal form

**Solution:**

We have to convert the given capacity into the decimal form

As we already know that

1000millilitres = 1 litre or 1000m = 1l

So, 1ml is the thousandths of a liter

1ml = 1/1000 = 0.001 l

13ml = 13/1000 = 0.013

82l 13ml = 82.013 l

Therefore, 82l 13ml into liters in the decimal form is 82.013 liters.

**Example 5.**

Convert 43l 10ml into liters in the decimal form

**Solution:**

We have to convert the given capacity into the decimal form

As we already know that

1000millilitres = 1 litre or 1000m = 1l

So, 1ml is the thousandths of a liter

1ml = 1/1000 = 0.001 l

10ml = 10/1000 = 0.010l

43l 10ml = 43.010l

Thus, 43l 10ml into liters in the decimal form is 43.010 liters.
