Q:

What is the difference between CC and mL?

A:

CCs (cubic centimeters) and mL (milliliters) are both units of volume that are equal to each other, but derived from different base units. A volume in CCs can be converted to mL simply by multiplying by 1, because 1 CC is equal to 1 mL.

The centimeter is derived from the meter, and is exactly 1 percent of a meter. A cubic centimeter is exactly 0.0001 percent of a cubic meter. The mL is derived from the liter, which unlike a meter, is already a unit of volume. A mL is exactly 0.001 percent of a liter. When measuring a given volume of liquid with a ruler, it is most practical to determine the volume in CCs or cubic meters before converting it to liters or mLs.

  • Q:

    How do you convert cc to oz?

    A:

    Converting from cubic centimeters to ounces can feel intimidating at first, especially since you are dealing with a cubed number and then trying to convert it to a different unit of measurement. One cubic centimeter is equal to 1 milliliter. If you know that, then you can use the conversion factor of milliliter to ounce, where 1 milliliter is equal to .0338 ounces or 1 ounce is equal to 29.57 milliliters.

  • Q:

    What is the difference between a milligram and a milliliter?

    A:

    A milligram measures mass while a milliliter measures volume. Mass relates to weight, or the amount of matter in a thing, while volume is how much space a substance takes up. This comparison is similar to comparing a pound (weight) to a cup (volume).
