## Understanding liters and milliliters: It's Easier Than You Think! • ### 1 liter equals 1000 milliliters. 1 milliliter equals 0.001 liters.

• To convert from milliliters to liters, divide by 1000.
• To convert from liters to milliliters, multiply by 1000.
• The liter is a unit of volume in the metric system. It is defined as the volume of a cube with sides of 10 centimeters. The liter is the base unit of volume in the International System of Units (SI). The liter is abbreviated as L.
• The milliliter is a unit of volume in the metric system. It is equal to one-thousandth of a liter. The milliliter is abbreviated as ml.
• The liter was first defined in 1793 by the French Academy of Sciences. It was originally defined as the volume of 1 kilogram of pure water at a temperature of 4 degrees Celsius. However, this definition was difficult to reproduce accurately, so it was later replaced by the current definition.
• The liter and milliliter are both derived from the French word "litre," which is thought to come from the Latin word "litra." The litra was a unit of weight used in ancient Rome.
• Milliliters are typically used to measure smaller volumes, such as the volume of a medicine dose or the volume of a liquid in a measuring cup.
• Liters are typically used to measure larger volumes, such as the volume of milk in a gallon carton or the volume of gasoline in a car's gas tank. It I used to measure a wide variety of volumes, including the volume of liquids, gases, and solids. It is a common unit of volume used in science, engineering, and commerce.
Interesting Facts:
• The smallest unit of volume in the metric system is the cubic millimeter (mm³).
• There are 1000 cubic millimeters in 1 milliliter.
• The largest unit of volume in the metric system is the cubic kilometer (km³).
• There are 1 billion liters in 1 cubic kilometer.

## Milliters vs Liters Milliliters (ml) are typically used to measure smaller volumes, such as:
• The volume of a medicine dose.
• The volume of a liquid in a measuring cup.
• The volume of a blood sample.
• The volume of a syringe.
• The volume of an eye drop bottle.
Liters (L) are typically used to measure larger volumes, such as:
• The volume of milk in a gallon carton.
• The volume of gasoline in a car's gas tank.
• The volume of a bottle of soda.
• The volume of a swimming pool.
• The volume of a bathtub.
Here are some general guidelines for when to use milliliters vs. liters:
• Use milliliters for:
• Measuring small volumes of liquids, such as medicine doses, cooking ingredients, and blood samples.
• Measuring the volume of liquids in syringes, eye drop bottles, and other medical devices.
• Use liters for:
• Measuring larger volumes of liquids, such as milk, gasoline, and soda.
• Measuring the volume of liquids in containers such as gallon cartons, bottles, and swimming pools.
Examples:
• "Please give me 5 milliliters of cough syrup."
• "I need 20 liters of gasoline to fill my tank."
• "The recipe calls for 100 milliliters of oil."
• "The swimming pool holds 50,000 liters of water."
• "The doctor took a 10 milliliter blood sample."
