Q:

How do you convert 385 milliliters to grams?

A:

Converting 385 milliliters to grams requires knowledge of the liquid being measured, but if the liquid is pure water, the conversion is 1-to-1 making 385 milliliters 385 grams.

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.

  • 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.

    What is the conversion of 100 milliliters to ounces?

    A:

    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.
