L to mL

Welcome to L to mL, our article about the conversion of liters to milliliters.

If you have been looking for how many milliliters are in a liter, then you have also found the right site. 🙂

In L in mL, the L is the official symbol for the metric unit of volume liter, and so is the lowercase l.

The m, always lowercase, is the SI prefix for milli.

Some countries even use the script lowercase ℓ to denote liter (American spelling) or litre (international spelling).

How to convert liters to milliliters in 2 easy steps:

  1. Multiply the Volume by 1000

    [L] ×1000 = x

  2. Add the Unit Symbol for Milliliter

    x → x mL

As can be deducted from the formula, to convert the volume multiply the value for liter by 1000.

You achieve the same result by adding three zeroes to the amount of milliliters.

For example, if you have 3.5 L, multiply 3.5 by 1000 to obtain 3500 mL.

Or move the decimal point of the volume in liters three places to the right like this: 3.5 → 35 → 350 → 3500.

With either method you obtain the result 3.5 L = 3500 mL.

As you have seen, you can convert liter to mL with a single multiplication.

How many mL in a Liter?

To answer this question we consider that milli denotes a thousandth, so the L into mL formula is [mL] = [L] × 1000.

Therefore, the volume conversion is as follows:

0.001 L in mL = 1 mL
1/1000 L = 1 mL
10−3 liters to milliliters = 1 milliliter

With these equations in mind, how many mL is in a liter? no longer challenges you, but remember that the conversion can also be written lowercase, or as 0.001 ℓ in mℓ = 1 mℓ.
