## How to convert liters to milliliters (l to ml)

The formula for converting liters to milliliters is: ml = l × 1000. To calculate the liter value in milliliters first substitute the liter value into the preceding formula, and then perform the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 liter in milliliters we follow these steps:

ml = l × 1000

m1 = l × 1000

ml = 1000

In other words, 1 liter is equal to 1000 milliliters.

## Example Conversion

Let's take a look at an example. The step-by-step process to convert 5 liters to milliliters is:

- Understand the conversion formula: ml = l × 1000
- Substitute the required value. In this case we substitute 5 for l so the formula becomes: m5 = l × 1000
- Calculate the result using the provided values. In our example the result is: 5 × 1000 = 5000 ml

In summary, 5 liters is equal to 5000 milliliters.

## Converting milliliters to liters

In order to convert the other way around i.e. milliliters to liters, you would use the following formula: l = ml × 0.001. To convert milliliters to liters first substitute the milliliter value into the above formula, and then execute the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 milliliter in liters we follow these steps:

l = ml × 0.001

l = 1 × 0.001

l = 0.001

Or in other words, 1 milliliter is equal to 0.001 liters.
