If any other liquid besides water is being measured, the density of the liquid must be taken into account as milliliters is a unit of volume and grams is a unit of mass. Once the density of the liquid is known, however, the conversion is a matter of simple multiplication. Identify the density of the liquid in grams per milliliter and multiply that by the number of milliliters to get the result.

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.

The volume of a liquid can be measured in the lab with a beaker, graduated cylinder, burets, pipette or micropipette. The instrument used depends on the actual volume of the liquid and the desired degree of accuracy.

One U.S. fluid ounce is approximately 30 milliliters, so to convert 100 milliliters to its equivalent in fluid ounces, one simply needs to divide 100 by 30 to get the U.S. fluid-ounce equivalent of 3.33 per 100 milliliters. A fluid ounce should not be confused with an ounce, which is a unit used for measuring mass. However, one can simply use the word "ounce" when the context is obviously referring to fluid measurements.
