Grams and milliliters are commonly used units in both cooking and science. While grams measure weight, milliliters measure volume. This means the conversion between the two isn't straightforward and varies depending on the substance. For example, converting grams of sugar to milliliters will yield a different result than converting grams of water to milliliters because their densities are different. Our converter takes the guesswork out of the process by factoring in these differences.
The formula to convert g to ml depends on the density of the substance being converted. The basic formula is:
Milliliters = Grams / Density (g/mL)
Where:
If you have 50 grams of water, and the density of water is 1 g/mL:
Milliliters = 50 grams / 1 g/mL = 50 mL
Milliliters = 50 grams / 1.42 g/mL = 35.21 mL
