Please provide values below to convert milliliter [mL] to cubic centimeter [cm^3], or vice versa.

 From: milliliter To: cubic centimeter

### Milliliter

Definition: A milliliter (symbol: mL) is a unit of volume that is accepted for use in the international system of units (SI). One milliliter is equal to 1 cubic centimeter (cm3), 1/1,000,000 cubic meters (m3), or 1/1000 liters.

History/Origin: The base unit of the milliliter is the liter (US spelling), spelled "litre" in SI terms. The term "litre" was originally part of the French metric system and was derived from the term "litron," one of the older versions of the French litre. Refer to the liter page for further details.

Current use: Milliliters are used to measure the volume of many types of smaller containers in everyday use, such as plastic bottles, cans, drinking, glasses, juice and milk cartons, yogurt, toothpaste tubes, perfume/cologne bottles, etc. Many measurement devices such as graduated cylinders, beakers, pipettes, measurement cups, etc. also use the measurement of milliliters.

### Cubic centimeter

Definition: The cubic centimeter (symbol: cm3) is an SI derived unit of volume based on the cubic meter. It is the volume of a cube with measurements 1 cm × 1 cm × 1 cm, and is equal to 1/1,000,000 of a cubic meter, 1/1,000 of a liter, or 1 milliliter. The abbreviations of cc and ccm are also sometimes used to denote a cubic centimeter, but their use is deprecated in the International System of Units (SI).

History/origin: The cubic centimeter was derived from the cubic meter, using an SI prefix, in this case "centi," to denote a submultiple of the base unit.

Current use: The cubic centimeter is used in many scientific disciplines, often in the form of milliliters (symbol: mL). Although the cubic centimeter is based on the SI unit of volume, the mL (and its multiples) are more commonly used as a measurement of volume than the cubic centimeter. The United States medical and automotive fields are an exception to this, and the cubic centimeter is still widely used in these fields. In contrast, the United Kingdom uses cubic centimeters in the medical, but not the automotive field.

### How to Convert Milliliter to Cubic Centimeter

1 mL = 1 cm^3
1 cm^3 = 1 mL

Example: convert 15 mL to cm^3:
15 mL = 15 × 1 cm^3 = 15 cm^3
