Q:

What is 300 milliliters in grams?

A:

Because the milliliter is a unit of volume, and grams are a unit of mass, the answer to this question depends on what material one is measuring. For one of the most common materials, water, the conversion is simple. Because 1 milliliter of water equals 1 gram of mass, 300 milliliters of water weighs 300 grams.

The answer becomes more complicated if measuring a volume of a less common liquid. For example, the heaviest liquid at room temperature, mercury, has a mass of 13.6 grams per milliliter. In turn, 300 milliliters of mercury has a mass of 4,080 grams, which is a bit more than the weight of two 2-liter bottles of soda.

  • Q:

    How do you convert 15 ml to grams?

    A:

    As grams are a unit of mass and milliliters are a unit of volume, you need to know the density of the substance you are measuring in milliliters in order to convert the measurement from milliliters to grams. In the case of water, 1 gram = 1 milliliter, so 15 milliliters of water = 15 grams.

  • Q:

    What is 10 milliliters in grams?

    A:

    A milliliter is a measurement of volume, while a gram is a measurement of mass. Therefore, it is impossible to convert between the two measures without additional information. However, one can determine the mass if the density of the substance in question is known.

    What is the difference between milliliters and cubic centimeters?

    A:

    The milliliter is based on the liter, which is not a standard unit in the SI system, while the cubic centimeter is a derived unit from the SI standard unit of length, the meter. Both contain the same volume.

  • Q:

    How do you convert milligrams to milliliters?

    A:

    In order to convert milligrams to milliliters, one must know the density of the substance; if the density is measured in milligrams per milliliter, the milligrams of mass of the object being measured are divided by the density of the substance to determine the volume in millimeters. Because density is generally not listed in milligrams per milliliter, it is likely that some calculations must be done to convert the density into the appropriate units.
