## Conversion formula

The conversion factor from deciliters to liters is 0.1, which means that 1 deciliter is equal to 0.1 liters:

1 dL = 0.1 L

To convert 0.5 deciliters into liters we have to multiply 0.5 by the conversion factor in order to get the volume amount from deciliters to liters. We can also form a simple proportion to calculate the result:

1 dL → 0.1 L

0.5 dL → V(L)

Solve the above proportion to obtain the volume V in liters:

V(L) = 0.5 dL × 0.1 L

V(L) = 0.05 L

The final result is:

0.5 dL → 0.05 L

We conclude that 0.5 deciliters is equivalent to 0.05 liters:

0.5 deciliters = 0.05 liters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 liter is equal to 20 × 0.5 deciliters.

Another way is saying that 0.5 deciliters is equal to 1 ÷ 20 liters.

## Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that zero point five deciliters is approximately zero point zero five liters:

0.5 dL ≅ 0.05 L

An alternative is also that one liter is approximately twenty times zero point five deciliters.
