Milliliters and liters are both units used to measure volume.
- The milliliter is a unit of volume equal to 1 cubic centimeter, 1/1,000 of a liter, or about 0.061 cubic inches
- A liter is a unit of volume equal to 1,000 cubic centimeters. The liter is a special name defined for the cubic decimeter and is exactly equal to the volume of one cubic decimeter.
To convert a milliliter measurement to a liter measurement, divide the volume by the conversion ratio. One liter is equal to 1,000 milliliters, so use the formula given below to convert:
liters = milliliters ÷ 1,000
