Liters and milliliters (mL) volume units conversion factor is 1000. To find out how many milliliters in liters, multiply the liter value by 1000 or use the converter.
1 Liter = 1000 Milliliters
In metric system, the prefix "milli" means "one thousandth of", that makes easier to remember how to convert from liters to milliliters, because if you replace the "milli" with "1000" in word "milliliter", 1 milliliter means 1000 of a liter (or 1 L = 1000 mL).
For example, to find out how many mL in a half liter, multiply the liter value by the conversion factor, 1/2 L * 1000 (mL in 1 L) = 500 mL in 1/2 liter.
Liter (litre in SI spelling) is a volume unit. 1 liter equals to 1 cubic decimeter or 1000 cubic centimeters (volume of a cube with 10 cm all sides, 10 * 10 * 10 = 1000 cubic cm, that makes 1 cubic cm is 1 mL). A liter is also defined as the volume of one kilogram of water. There are 1.05669 quarts, 2.11338 pints or 33.814 fl. ounces in a liter. The abbreviations of litre are "L" and "l".
