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.

Liter

Definition: A liter (symbol: L) is a unit of volume that is accepted for use with the International System of Units (SI) but is technically not an SI unit. One liter is equal to 1 cubic decimeter (dm3), 1,000 cubic centimeters (cm3), or 1/1,000 cubic meters (m3).

History/origin: There was a point from 1901 to 1964 when a liter was defined as the volume of one kilogram of pure water under the conditions of maximum density at atmospheric pressure. However, due to the mass-volume relationship of water being based on a number of factors that can be cumbersome to control (temperature, pressure, purity, isotopic uniformity), as well as the discovery that the prototype of the kilogram was slightly too large (making the liter equal to 1.000028 dm3 rather than 1 dm3), the definition of the liter was reverted to its previous, and current definition.

Current use: The liter is used to measure many liquid volumes as well as to label containers containing said liquids. It is also used to measure certain non-liquid volumes such as the size of car trunks, backpacks and climbing packs, computer cases, microwaves, refrigerators, and recycling bins, as well as for expressing fuel volumes and prices in most countries around the world.
