How to convert fluid ounces (US) to milliliters (fl oz to ml)

The formula for converting fluid ounces (US) to milliliters is: ml = fl oz × 29.5735295641119. To calculate the fluid ounce (US) value in milliliters first substitute the fluid ounce (US) value into the preceding formula, and then perform the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 fluid ounce (US) in milliliters we follow these steps:

ml = fl oz × 29.5735295641119

ml = 1 × 29.5735295641119

ml = 29.5735295641119

In other words, 1 fluid ounce (US) is equal to 29.5735295641119 milliliters.

Example Conversion

Let's take a look at an example. The step-by-step process to convert 5 fluid ounces (US) to milliliters is:

  1. Understand the conversion formula: ml = fl oz × 29.5735295641119
  2. Substitute the required value. In this case we substitute 5 for fl oz so the formula becomes: ml = 5 × 29.5735295641119
  3. Calculate the result using the provided values. In our example the result is: 5 × 29.5735295641119 = 147.8676478205595 ml

In summary, 5 fluid ounces (US) is equal to 147.8676478205595 milliliters.

Converting milliliters to fluid ounces (US)

In order to convert the other way around i.e. milliliters to fluid ounces (US), you would use the following formula: fl oz = ml × 0.0338140227. To convert milliliters to fluid ounces (US) first substitute the milliliter value into the above formula, and then execute the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 milliliter in fluid ounces (US) we follow these steps:

fl oz = ml × 0.0338140227

fl oz = 1 × 0.0338140227

fl oz = 0.0338140227

Or in other words, 1 milliliter is equal to 0.0338140227 fluid ounces (US).

Conversion Unit Definitions

What is a Fluid Ounce (US)?

A fluid ounce is a unit of volume commonly used to measure the volume of liquids. It is part of both the US customary system and the British imperial system of units, although the measurements differ slightly between the two systems.
In the US customary system, a fluid ounce (abbreviated as "fl oz") is defined as 1/128th of a US gallon, which is approximately equal to 29.57 milliliters. In the British imperial system, a fluid ounce is defined as 1/160th of an imperial gallon, which is approximately equal to 28.41 milliliters.
Common uses of fluid ounces include:
  1. Beverage Serving Sizes: In the United States, fluid ounces are commonly used to indicate serving sizes for beverages such as water, soda, juice, and alcohol. For example, a standard can of soda typically contains 12 fluid ounces, while a bottle of water may have 16.9 fluid ounces.

  2. Cooking and Baking: Fluid ounces are often used in recipes, especially in the United States, to measure ingredients like water, milk, oil, or other liquids. Many measuring cups and spoons include markings for fluid ounces to assist in accurate measurement.

  3. Personal Care Products: Fluid ounces are used on packaging for personal care products like shampoo, conditioner, body wash, lotions, and other cosmetics. These measurements help consumers understand the volume or quantity of the product they are purchasing.

  4. Medications and Pharmaceuticals: Fluid ounces are sometimes used to measure liquid medications, cough syrups, or other pharmaceutical products. The instructions on the packaging often indicate dosages in fluid ounces or milliliters.

  5. Bartending: In the context of bartending and mixology, fluid ounces are used to measure and mix various ingredients in cocktails and other beverages. Bartenders often use jiggers or measuring tools to precisely pour specific amounts of liquid in fluid ounces.

It's important to note that the specific uses of fluid ounces can vary depending on the country and the industry. The above examples highlight some of the common applications where fluid ounces are utilized for measuring liquid volumes.

What is a Milliliter?

A milliliter (abbreviated as mL) is a metric unit of volume commonly used to measure small quantities of liquid. It is a subunit of the liter, which is the base unit of volume in the metric system. The milliliter is equivalent to one thousandth of a liter, which means there are 1,000 milliliters in a liter.
To visualize the size of a milliliter, imagine a cube with sides measuring 1 centimeter each. A milliliter would occupy the same volume as this cube.
The milliliter is widely used in various fields such as medicine, chemistry, cooking, and everyday measurements. It provides a convenient and precise measurement for small quantities of liquids, such as medications, ingredients in recipes, or volumes of solutions in laboratory experiments.
In summary, a milliliter is a metric unit of volume equal to one thousandth of a liter. It is frequently used to measure small volumes of liquid and is denoted by the symbol mL.
Here's an example to help illustrate the size of a milliliter:
Let's say you have a small medicine dropper that has a capacity of 5 milliliters. When you fill the dropper with liquid, it can hold 5 milliliters of the substance.
To put this into perspective, imagine you have a teaspoon in your kitchen. A teaspoon is roughly equivalent to 5 milliliters. So, if you were to fill the medicine dropper to its maximum capacity, it would hold approximately the same volume of liquid as one teaspoon.
This example demonstrates how a milliliter can represent a small but measurable amount of liquid. It is a useful unit of measurement when precision is required for small volumes, such as in pharmaceuticals, cooking recipes, or laboratory experiments.
