How to Convert Liters to Milliliters

To convert a liter measurement to a milliliter measurement, multiply the volume by the conversion ratio.

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

milliliters = liters × 1,000

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

For example, here's how to convert 5 liters to milliliters using the formula above.
5 l = (5 × 1,000) = 5,000 ml

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


A liter is a unit of volume equal to 1,000 cubic centimeters.[1] The liter is a special name defined for the cubic decimeter and is exactly equal to the volume of one cubic decimeter.

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 . For example, 1 liter can be written as 1 l, 1 L, or 1 ℓ.


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 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.
