For the conversion of standard unit of capacity it’s very important to know the relationship between the different units of capacity.

We know, one liter = 1000 milliliter

1000 milliliter = 1 liter

Relationship between different capacities:

1000 milliliter = 1 liter

Two 500 milliliter = 1 liter

Five 200 milliliter = 1 liter

Ten 100 milliliter = 1 liter

Twenty 50 milliliter = 1 liter

Thus, 1 liter = Two 500 milliliter = Five 200 milliliter = Ten 100 milliliter = Twenty 50 milliliter

Conversion of liter into milliliter and milliliter
into liter:

(i) To convert liter into milliliter, we write three zeroes (000) to the right of the number of liters.

As, 1 liter = 1000 milliliter, 5 liter
= 5000 milliliter

(ii)** **To convert milliliters into liters, we take the first 3 digits of
the number from the extreme right as milliliters and the rest are written as liters.

Worked-out problems conversion of standard unit of capacity:

**1. Convert the following into ml:**

**(i)** 7 liters

We know, 1 liter = 1000 milliliter

= 7 × 1000 milliliters

= 7000 milliliters

Therefore, 7 liters = 7000 milliliters

**(ii)** 15 liters

We know, 1 liter = 1000 milliliter

= 15 × 1000 ml

= 15000 ml

Therefore, 15 liters = 15000 milliliters

**(iii)** 4 *l* 70 *ml*

We know, 1 liter = 1000 milliliter

= 4 × 1000 ml + 70 ml

= 4000 ml + 70 ml

= 4070 ml

Therefore, 4 *l* 70 *ml* = 4070 milliliters

**2. Express the following in liters and milliliters:**

**(i)** 6000 ml

= 6 liters 000 milliliters

= 6 *l*

Therefore, 6000 ml = 6 liter

**(ii)** 3579 ml

= 3 *l* + 579 *ml *

= 3 *l* 579 *ml*

Therefore, 3579 ml = *l* 579 *ml*

**(iii)** 15437 ml

= 15 *l* + 437 *ml *

= 15 *l* 437 *ml*

Therefore, 15437 ml = 15 *l* 437 *ml*

Thus, the three digits from the right denote milliliters and remaining digits denote liters.
