Since grams are a unit of mass and milliliters are a unit of volume, which are different physical quantities, we need to know one more physical quantity of the ingredient or substance to convert between them.In this case, we need to account for the density of the substance whenever we do a conversion.

Therefore, to convert between grams and milliliters of an ingredient or substance, we must either multiply or divide by its density, depending on which direction we are performing the conversion.

Grams to Milliliters Formula

To convert a measurement in grams to milliliters, divide the weight by the density of the ingredient or material.Note that in order for this to work, the density must be in grams per milliliter (g/mL).

You can use this simple formula to convert:

milliliters = grams ÷ density

Thus, the volume in milliliters is equal to the weight in grams divided by the density (in g/mL) of the ingredient, substance, or material.

For example, here's how to convert 5 grams to milliliters for an ingredient or substance with a density of 0.7 g/mL.

milliliters = 5 g ÷ 0.7 g/mL = 7.1429 mL

When to Convert Grams to Milliliters

Grams and milliliters are both commonly used to measure cooking ingredients.

For cooking applications, most chefs suggest measuring dry ingredients by weight rather than volume to improve accuracy in the measurements.[1] The density of dry ingredients can vary for a variety of reasons, such as compaction and clumping.

The best way to ensure an accurate conversion is to use a scale. When a scale is not available, a calculator like the one above is a good way to estimate the weight to volume conversion.

Another useful application of weight and volume conversions is chemistry.When performing chemical reactions by combining separate chemicals to produce a new chemical, one must know the exact amount of each chemical to add in order to maximize the yield of the reaction.

It is common to mix powdered chemicals with liquid, or aqueous, chemicals, and this is where it becomes very useful to convert between weights and volumes.[2]

What Is a Gram?

A gram is a unit of mass equal to 1/1,000 of a kilogram or 0.035274 ounces, and is equivalent to the mass of one cubic centimeter, or one milliliter, of water.

The gram, or gramme, is an SI unit of mass in the metric system. Grams can be abbreviated as g; for example, 1 gram can be written as 1 g.

A gram is frequently referred to as a unit of weight.While technically, a gram is a measure of mass, and weight is actually a measure of force, the two are equivalent as long as we are performing our calculations on Earth.

For example, an object with a mass of 1 gram weighs 1 gram on Earth, but only weighs one-sixth of that on the moon, yet still has the same mass.

What Is a Milliliter?

The milliliter is a unit of volume equal to 1 cubic centimeter, 1/1,000 of a liter, or about 0.061 cubic inches.[3]

The milliliter is an SI unit of volume in the metric system. In the metric system, "milli" is the prefix for thousandths, or 10-3. A milliliter is sometimes also referred to as a millilitre. Milliliters can be abbreviated as mL, and are also sometimes abbreviated as ml or mℓ. For example, 1 milliliter can be written as 1 mL, 1 ml, or 1 mℓ.

Since one milliliter is equivalent to one cubic centimeter, milliliters are sometimes expressed using the abbreviation for a cubic centimeter (cc) for things such as medical dosages or engine displacements.
