# ml to l Formula

Before learning the ml to l formula, let us recall what are liter (l) and milliliter (ml). Liter(l) and ml are units of liquid measure of quantity. ml to l formula helps in the conversion of the value of a quantity given in milliliters to its equivalent value in liters. Let us learn the ml to l formula in the following section.

## What is the ml to l Formula?

The conversion formula that relates liters and milliliters is 1 liter = 1000 milliliters. Using this, the ml to l formula is given as,

### ml to l Formula:

Quantity in liter = Quantity in milliliter/ 1000

Let us see the applications of ml to l formula in solved examples in the following section.

## Examples Using ml to l Formula

**Example 1:** Using the ml to l formula, convert 2780 ml to l.

**Solution:**

To find: 2780 ml in l

Using ml to l formula,

2780 ml = 2780/1000 l

= 2.78 l

**Answer**: 2780 ml = 2.78 l

**Example 2: **A container is completely filled with 8700 ml of liquid. Determine the capacity of the container in l.

**Solution:**

To find: Capacity of the container in a liter(l)

Using ml to l formula,

The capacity of a container in l = Capacity of the container in ml/1000

= 8700/1000

= 8.7 l

**Answer**: Capacity of a container in liters = 8.7 l.
