Centnar was a Polish measure of weight and was used for dry goods. The Watner measure was used for liquids . The structure in the dimensional chain was the same as this measure. There was no difference.

The Funt was calculated at 405.504 grams , so that the Centnar weighed 40.5504 kilograms. In the Free State of Krakow, for example, iron was weighed with the centnar / hundredweight and the hundredweight was valued at either 100 or 128 funtow when sold.

The old Polish, new Polish and Krakow Centnar were identical in the places before the decimal point.
