A liter equals 1,000 cubic decimeters, or a cube with 10-centimeter sides. As of 2014, the centiliter is rarely ever used, with the liter and milliliter being preferred. Thus, to convert 50 centiliters to milliliters, multiply 50 by 10, as there are 10 milliliters in every deciliter. The conversion yields 500 milliliters.
