Liquids are a common source of elements which are found in our daily life. It may be in the form of water, juices or even raindrops. These sources are measured in litres which is a part of the metric system and its subdivision is millilitres (ml). Now when you come across these liquids some of you may wonder what is 1 l equal to in ml in your daily life or how to calculate ml and how many 100ml are there in a litre. This article will help you measure them all!

**1. Which is Bigger mL or L?**

Before we understand what is 1 l equal to in ml, let’s see which is bigger of the two. L i.e., a** litre **is bigger than ml i.e., millilitre. 1 L hosts 1000ml in itself.

For the measurement of the volume of liquid, a litre is used as the standard unit whereas a millilitre is used to measure the same in terms of small quantities. (See How Many Grams Is 1 Litre?)

**2. How do You Calculate mL?**

It is easy to calculate ml by** multiplying the given value of litre by 1000. **

So, 10 l is equivalent to 10 × 1000 = 10000 ml.

Another way to calculate the same is by dividing milligrams by thousand, using 1000 mg = 1 ml. (See How many ml in a gallon?)

**3. What makes up 1 Litre?**

A litre is made up of a cubic decimetre i.e. 10 cm × 10 cm × 10 cm which concludes that 1l = 1000 cm^{3}.

**4. What is 1 L equal to in mL?**

Now that you are aware of what makes up a litre, let us now understand what is 1 l equal to in ml. 1 l can be easily converted to ml if you know the relationship between both. The calculation of ml to l concludes that **1 l = 1000 ml** as a millilitre represents the thousandth of a litre. Both litre and millilitres are used to represent the volume or the capacity of liquid and differ according to the quantity required to measure. (See How much is 100 ml of Water in Glass?)

**5. Is 1 Litre the Same as 500mL?**

**No,** 1 litre is not the same as 500 ml. 500 ml is equivalent to 500 divided by 1000 which is 0.5 i.e. it measures up to half a litre. Hence it means that they are not the same. (See How many Litres are in a Gallon?)

**6. Which is More 100 mL or 1 Litre?**

**1 litre** is more than 100 ml. While understanding what is 1 l equal to in ml, you know 1 millilitre is equivalent to 0.001 litres therefore, 100 millilitres will be equivalent to 0.001 multiplied by 100 which becomes 0.1 litres. This clearly shows the hierarchy and difference between the two. Must read How many Ounces in 750 ml?

**7. How much Water is 1ltr?**

After learning about which is more, 100 ml or 1 litre, you may wonder how much water makes an ltr. 1 ltr of water is equal to** 1000 gms of water.** A litre is defined in terms of a cubic decimeter which is equal to 1000gms. This basically brings us to the conclusion that 1000gms or 33.8 ounces of water gives a litre of water. Must read How many Ounces in a Half Gallon?

**8. Is a 1000mL 1 Litre?**

**Yes,** 1000 ml is equivalent to 1 litre. You are required to multiply the litre value by 1000 to calculate ml. ML and litre both are used to represent the same quantity but their values are different and can be easily interconverted. (See How much is 100 ml in Cups?)

**9. How many 250 mL are there in 2 Litres?**

As you know 2 litres is equal to 2000 ml. Now, 2000ml when divided by 250 gives 8 which means that **8 times 250 ml makes 2 litres.** This calculation can be written as 250/8 or 2 L = 8 × 250 mL. So, how many 250 ml are there in 2 litres? The answer is 8. (See How many fluid ounces are in a half pint?)

**10. How many 200 mL makes a Litre?**

1000 millilitres make one litre. So, 1000 divided by 200 gives 5 which means that **5 times 200 ml **makes a litre.

Or you can write as:

- 1 L is equal to (200 + 200 + 200 + 200 + 200) mL
- 1 L is equal to 5 × 200 mL

Hence we can say that there are five 200 ml in 1 litre. (Also read What is 4 Quarts of Water?)
