# How do you convert ml to l?

Jul 8, 2017

There are 1000 mL (milliliters) in 1 L (liter).
So, to convert from mL to L, divide by 1000.

I hope this helps a lot! :)

Divide by 1000

#### Explanation:

The m in ml is short for milli which refers to a quantity of ${10}^{-} 3$.

${10}^{-} 3$ is equivalent to $\frac{1}{1000}$ which you can think of as times that number or divide by it's reciprocal (1000)

For $m L$ to $L$, muliply by ${10}^{-} 3. \ldots \ldots \ldots .$

#### Explanation:

$\text{milli} \equiv {10}^{-} 3$, and thus $\text{1 millilitre} \equiv 1 \times {10}^{-} 3 \cdot L$

And thus $10 \cdot m L = 10 \cdot m L \times 1 \times {10}^{-} 3 \cdot L \cdot m {L}^{-} 1 = {10}^{-} 2 \cdot L$
