### Capacity Conversion Table | Units of Capacity Conversion Chart

For the conversion of standard units of capacity, we must know the relationship between the different units of capacity.

We know, one liter = 1000 milliliter1000 milliliter = 1 liter Relationship between different capacities: 1000 milliliter = 1 liter Two 500 milliliter = 1 liter Five 200 milliliter = 1 liter Ten 100 milliliter = 1 liter Twenty 50 milliliter = 1 literTherefore, 1 liter = 500 milliliter+ 500 milliliter = Five 200 milliliter = Ten 100 milliliter = Twenty 50 milliliter |

### How do you Convert Units of Capacity?

Here we can learn to convert liters into milliliters and milliliters into liters.

**Conversion of liter into milliliter:**

For converting liter into milliliter, we write three zeroes (000) to the right of the number of liters.

As, 1 liter = 1000 milliliter, 9 liter = 9000 milliliter

**Conversion of milliliter into liter:**

For converting milliliters into liters, we take the first 3 digits of the number from the extreme right as milliliters and the rest are written as liters.

### Standard Unit of Capacity Conversion Examples

Consider some examples which convert liters to milliliters and milliliters to liters and milliliters, milliliters to liters.

**1. Convert the following to ml**

(i) 6 liters

Solution:

We know, 1 liter = 1000 milliliter

= 6 × 1000 milliliters

= 6000 milliliters

Therefore, 6 liters = 6000 milliliters

(ii) 13 liters

Solution:

We know, 1 liter = 1000 milliliter

= 13 × 1000 ml

= 13000 ml

Therefore, 13 liters = 13000 milliliters

(iii) 2 l 90 ml

Solution:

We know, 1 liter = 1000 milliliter

Multiply the number of liters by 1000 to convert it into ml.

= 2 × 1000 ml + 90 ml

= 2000 ml + 90 ml

= 2090 ml

Therefore, 2 l 90 ml = 2090 milliliters

**2. Express the following in liters and milliliters**

(i) 8000 ml

Solution:

The three digits from the right side of the number denote milliliters and the remaining digits denote liters.

Three digits from the right side of the number i.e. Three zeros represents milliliters and 8 represents liters.

= 8 liters 000 milliliters

= 8 l

Therefore, 8000 ml = 8 liter

(ii) 6428 ml

Solution:

The three digits from the right side of the number denote milliliters and the remaining digits denote liters.

= 6 l + 428 ml

= 6 l 428 ml

Therefore, 6428 ml = 6 l 428 ml

(iii) 38683 ml

Solution:

The three digits from the right side of the number denote milliliters and the remaining digits denote liters.

= 38 l + 683 ml

= 38 l 683 ml

Therefore, 38683 ml = 38 l 683 ml

(iv)12978 ml

Solution:

The three digits from the right side of the number denote milliliters and the remaining digits denote liters.

l ml

lml

Therefore, 12978 ml = 12 l 978 ml

**3. Convert the following Milliliters to Liters**

(i) 4000 ml

Solution:

We know, 1 liter = 1000 milliliter

To convert milliliters to liters divide it with 1000.

= 4000 ÷ 1000

= 4 liters

Therefore, 4000 ml = 4 liters

(ii) 25000 milliliters

Solution:

We know, 1 liter = 1000 milliliter

To convert milliliters to liters divide it with 1000.

= 25000 ÷ 1000

=25 liters

Therefore, 25000 milliliters = 25 liters

(iii) 50000 milliliters

Solution:

We know, 1 liter = 1000 milliliter

Divide the number of liters by 1000 to convert it into liters.

= 50000 ÷ 1000

= 50 liters
