the conversion factor is:
the unit L will be cancelled and mL will remain..
solve in the calculator.
to get a milli-"something" you take the original quantity and unit and times it by 1000
same with centi-"something" except you would use 100
1L= 1000 ml
You can remember this by keeping in mind that the prefix "milli" means one thousandth (0.001) therefore a milliliter is a thousandth of a liter. It is helpful to remember some other prefixes as well:
megaliter=one million liters= 10^6
kiloliter=one thousand liters=1000
liter= one liter= 1
deciliter=one tenth of a liter=0.1
centiliter=one hundredth of a liter=0.01
milliliter=one thousandth of a liter=0.001
microliter=one millionth of a liter=10^-6
nanoliter=one billionth of a liter=10^-9
