Conversion of Standard Unit of Capacity

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.
