It's about as big as The Blood in a Human Body.
(for 70 kg body; average altitude; average)
The volume of blood in the average human body is about 50 deciliters. Persons living at high altitude, however, may have up to an additional 20 deciliters of blood to compensate for the lower oxygen level.
It's about nine-tenths as big as a Bowling Ball.
In other words, 50 deciliters is 0.948884723990 times the size of a Bowling Ball, and the size of a Bowling Ball is 1.0538687943 times that amount.
(USBC specifications; tenpin)
According to United States Bowling Congress specifications, a tenpin bowling ball should measure at least 10.795 cm (4.25 in) in radius for a total volume of about 52.6934397150 deciliters. Because regulation balls measure the same diameter irrespective of their weight, ball density varies by size and balls weighing less than about 5 kg (11 lbs) will float in water.
It's about seven-tenths as big as a Basketball.
In other words, 50 deciliters is 0.703807357090 times the size of a Basketball, and the size of a Basketball is 1.42084334570 times that amount.
(NBA official ball standards, Size 7)
A NBA official ball, manufactured by Spalding, is a Size 7 ball and measures about 71.042167287 deciliters. The surface of these balls have 4,118 pebbles with a diameter of 2.5 mm each.
It's about three-fifths as big as a Bowling Ball (packed).
In other words, 50 deciliters is 0.607286223350 times the size of a Bowling Ball (packed), and the size of a Bowling Ball (packed) is 1.64666999110 times that amount.
(64% packing density) (USBC specifications; tenpin)
According to United States Bowling Congress specifications, a tenpin bowling ball should measure at least 10.795 cm (4.25 in) in radius for a total volume of about 52.6934397150 deciliters. Because regulation balls measure the same diameter irrespective of their weight, ball density varies by size and balls weighing less than about 5 kg (11 lbs) will float in water.
It's about half as big as a Basketball (packed).
In other words, 50 deciliters is 0.450436708520 times the size of a Basketball (packed), and the size of a Basketball (packed) is 2.22006772780 times that amount.
(64% packing density) (NBA official ball standards, Size 7)
A NBA official ball, manufactured by Spalding, is a Size 7 ball measures about 71.042167287 deciliters. These balls have 4,118 pebbles each with a diameter of 2.5 mm
It's about one-tenth as big as a Beer Keg.
In other words, 50 deciliters is 0.0852 times the size of a Beer Keg, and the size of a Beer Keg is 11.70 times that amount.
(Half barrel; maximum capacity)
The most common keg size sold by US beer sellers is a half-barrel type with a volume of 587 deciliters. This type of keg contains the equivalent of 165 3.550 deciliters cans of beer.
It's about one-fifteenth as big as a Car Gas Tank.
In other words, the size of a Car Gas Tank is 15.10 times 50 deciliters.
(for 2009 Ford Taurus)
A car gas tank (for example, that of a 2009 Ford Taurus) holds 757 deciliters of gas. In contrast, the Curved Dash Oldsmobile — the first mass-produced car — had a fuel capacity of just 200 deciliters.
