How to Convert Cubic Centimeters to Milliliters

Calculators can be used to convert measurements from one unit to another

To convert a cubic centimeter measurement to a milliliter measurement, multiply the volume by the conversion ratio. One cubic centimeter is equal to 1 milliliter, so use this simple formula to convert:

milliliters = cubic centimeters × 1

The volume in milliliters is equal to the cubic centimeters multiplied by 1.

For example, here's how to convert 5 cubic centimeters to milliliters using the formula above.
5 cm³ = (5 × 1) = 5 ml

Cubic centimeters and milliliters are both units used to measure volume. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

Cubic Centimeters

The cubic centimeter is a unit that is equal to the volume of a cube with one centimeter sides.

The cubic centimeter, or cubic centimetre, is a multiple of the cubic meter, which is the SI derived unit for volume. In the metric system, "centi" is the prefix for 10-2. Cubic centimeters can be abbreviated as cm³, and are also sometimes abbreviated as cu cm, cc, or ccm. For example, 1 cubic centimeter can be written as 1 cm³, 1 cu cm, 1 cc, or 1 ccm.


The milliliter is a unit of volume equal to 1 cubic centimeter, or 1/1,000 of a liter.

The milliliter is an SI unit of volume in the metric system. In the metric system, "milli" is the prefix for 10-3. A milliliter is sometimes also referred to as a millilitre. Milliliters can be abbreviated as ml, and are also sometimes abbreviated as mL or mℓ. For example, 1 milliliter can be written as 1 ml, 1 mL, or 1 mℓ.

Milliliters are sometimes expressed using the abbreviation cc for medical dosage, which is the abbreviation for the cubic centimeter.

Unit of Measurement Conversion Made Easy!

There are thousands of units of measure in use across the globe, and converting from one to another can be very difficult since each conversion requires a different formula to derive the result. Our unit of measurement conversion tools are meant to be dead easy. We break the mold of the typical dry and complicated experience. In addition to converting from one measurement to another, we provide the formula so you can see how the conversion is done, use it on you’re own calculator if you need to!

Understanding the Metric System

The metric system makes it relatively easy to convert from one metric unit to another metric unit. The metric system uses a base unit, think meters or grams, and a prefix such as kilo or milli. The prefixes differ from the base units by differing powers of 10. So to convert within the metric system it’s usually a matter of multiplying or dividing by one of the powers of 10.

Here is a list of some of the common metric prefixes:

  • “kilo” – 1,000x larger
  • “hecto” – 100x larger
  • “deca” – 10x larger
  • “deci” – 10x smaller
  • “centi” – 100x smaller
  • “milli” – 1,000x smaller

There is a helpful mnemonic for remembering the prefixes: “King Henry Died Until Drinking Chocolate Milk.”
The u in Until refers to the base unit.
