How to Convert Milliliters to Grams

Scales are used to measure weight

To convert a milliliter measurement to a gram measurement, multiply the volume by the density of the ingredient or material.

You can use this simple formula to convert:

grams = milliliters × ingredient density

Thus, the volume in grams is equal to the milliliters multiplied by the density of the ingredient or material.

For example, here's how to convert 5 milliliters to grams for an ingredient with a density of 0.7 g/mL.
5 ml = (5 × 0.7) = 3.5 g

Milliliters and grams are both commonly used to measure cooking ingredients.

For cooking applications, most chefs suggest measuring dry ingredients by weight rather than volume to improve accuracy in the measurements.[1] The density of dry ingredients can vary for a variety of reasons, such as compaction.

The best way to ensure an accurate conversion is to use a scale. When a scale is not available, a calculator like the one above is a good way to estimate the volume to weight conversion.

Milliliters

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.

Grams

A gram is the mass/weight equal to 1/1,000 of a kilogram and is roughly equivalent to the mass of one cubic centimeter of water.

The gram, or gramme, is an SI unit of weight in the metric system. Grams can be abbreviated as g; for example, 1 gram can be written as 1 g.
