## How to Convert Milliliters to Liters

To convert a measurement in milliliters to a measurement in liters, divide 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:

liters = milliliters ÷ 1,000

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

For example, here's how to convert 5,000 milliliters to liters using the formula above.
liters = (5,000 mL ÷ 1,000) = 5 L

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

## 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.[1]

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.

## What Is a Liter?

A liter is a unit of volume equal to 1,000 cubic centimeters or 0.264172 US gallons.[2] 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 . For example, 1 liter can be written as 1 L, 1 l, or 1 ℓ.
