## How to Convert Liters to Milliliters

To convert a measurement in liters to a measurement in milliliters, multiply the volume by the following conversion ratio: 1,000 milliliters/liter.

Since one liter is equal to 1,000 milliliters, you can use this simple formula to convert:

The volume in milliliters is equal to the volume in liters multiplied by 1,000.

**For example,**here's how to convert 5 liters to milliliters using the formula above.

### How Many Milliliters Are in a Liter?

There are **1,000** milliliters in a liter, which is why we use this value in the formula above.

1 L = 1,000 mL

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

## What is a Liter?

A liter is a unit of volume equal to 1,000 cubic centimeters or 0.264172 US gallons.^{[1]} The liter is a special name defined for the cubic decimeter and is exactly equal to the volume of one cubic decimeter (1 decimeter is 1/10 of a meter, or 10 centimeters).

The liter is an SI accepted unit for volume for use with the metric system. A liter is sometimes also referred to as a litre. Liters can be abbreviated as *L*, and are also sometimes abbreviated as *l* or *ℓ*. For example, 1 liter can be written as 1 L, 1 l, or 1 ℓ.

## What is a Milliliter?

The milliliter is a unit of volume equal to 1 cubic centimeter, 1/1,000 of a liter, or about 0.061 cubic inches.^{[2]}

The milliliter is an SI unit of volume in the metric system. In the metric system, "milli" is the prefix for thousandths, or 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.

Since one milliliter is equivalent to one cubic centimeter, milliliters are sometimes expressed using the abbreviation for a cubic centimeter (*cc*) for things such as medical dosages or engine displacements.
