The standard unit foe measuring capacity is litre.

The other units are

 10\textit{ml}=1\textit{cl}

 10\textit{cl}=1\textit{dl}

 10\textit{dl}=1\textit{l}

 \therefore\ 1\textit{l}=10\textit{dl}=100\textit{cl}=1000\textit{ml}

 1\textit{kl}=1000\textit{l}

 1\textit{dl}=1000\textit{ml}

Examples

  1.  1\textit{kl} into litres
     (5\times 1000)\textit{l}=5000\textit{l}
  2.  5\textit{l}\ 60\text{ml} into \textit{ml}
    \begin{array}{ll} 5\textit{l}\ 60\text{ml}&=(5\times 1000)\textit{ml}+60\textit{ml}\\ &=5000+60=\\ &=5060\textit{l}\end{array}
  3.  2\textit{kl}\ 5\text{hl}\ 6\textit{dal}\ 3\textit{l} into litresĀ 
    \begin{array}{ll}2\textit{kl}+ 5\text{hl}+ 6\textit{dal}+ 3\textit{l}&= 2000\textit{l}\ 500\text{l}\ 60\textit{l}\ 3\textit{l}\\ &=2563\textit{l}\end{array}
  4.  2000\textit{ml} into litres =(2000\div 1000) \textit{l}=2\textit{l}
  5.  2025\textit{ml} into litres is
    =2000\textit{ml}+25\textit{ml}=2\textit{l}+25\textit{ml}=2\textit{l}\ 25\textit{ml}
