If the volume of a sample of water is 2.5 millilitres (ml). What is the volume of this sample in litres (l)?
Millilitres (ml) and Litre (l) are used to measure capacity.
Answer: If the volume of a sample of water is 2.5 millilitres (ml) then the volume of the sample in litres (l) is 0.0025 l.
Let's see the volume in litres.
We know that 1 l = 1000 ml
⇒ 1 ml = (1/1000) l
To convert millilitres into litres, we divide the given volume by 1000.
Hence, 2.5 ml = (2.5/1000) l
⇒ 0.0025 l
