# Convert liters to milliliters

Sal converts between liters and milliliters.

## Want to join the conversation?

• Are milliliters 1000 liters?
• A milliliter is 1/1000 of a liter
or
1 liter = 1000ml
1/2 a liter is 500ml
• actually one liter is equal to 1000 milliliters
• Add 2400 mL to 8.9 L
• Both measurements need to be expressed in the same unit before they can be added (just like adding fractions requires first using a common denominator).

Remember that 1 L = 1000 mL.
So converting L to mL requires multiplying by 1000 (or equivalently moving the decimal point three places to the right). This also means that converting mL to L requires dividing by 1000 (or equivalently moving the decimal point three places to the left).

One method is to convert 2400 mL to L, getting 2.4 L.
Then we can add 2.4 L + 8.9 L = 11.3 L.

Another method is to convert 8.9 L to mL, getting 8900 mL.
Then we can add 2400 mL + 8900 mL = 11300 mL.

While the two answers we get may look different (11.3 L and 11300 mL), they are equivalent because 1 L = 1000 mL.

Of course, the answer that you choose to write or enter will depend on what units you're asked to use for your answer.
• how many milliliters are in a Liter?
• 'mil' means 1000, so we can deduce that there are 1000 milliliters in one liter.
• if 1l is 1000ml so what will be 10ml into l?
• the answer to you question is simply 0.01 liters
• ML=1,000 and L eqauls up to a liter
• What is greater 7 gallons Or 30pints
• It is probably 7 gallons. I do not know.

• Does mili mean 1000 or a million and why?
• In Latin, "mil" means 1000. In French, "mille" also means the same thing.
