Grams to mL

Changing grams to ml is a mass (m) to volume (V) conversion which is quite different from converting one unit into another.

To convert gram ml we need to know the mass as well as the density of the substance for which we want to know the volume in milliliters.

The density ρ (rho) of a material depends on the pressure and temperature conditions.

Read on below to learn all about g to ml and make sure to check out our grams in ml converter.

Convert grams to ml

In order to obtain the mass in gram we can put the material on a balance.

When we also have the density we know how to convert grams to ml using the equation V = m/ρ.


As we have explained on our home page, the density of water is very close to the value of 1 g/ cm3 if the height above sea level is zero and the temperature is approximately 39.2 °F or or 4°C.

For instance for cooking, generally in daily life different from science, we can assume rho to be 1.

Thus, In the case of water V = m/ρ becomes V = m.

That essentially means the grams to ml water ratio is 1:1.

1 gram = 1 ml water. One g H2O equals one ml.

Below you can find grams to milliliters for frequent ingredients:


To convert g to ml for milk, with ρ = 1.03 we get:

1 g milk ≈ 0.97 ml.


For cream ρ = 1.0115: 1 g cream = 0.988 ml.

ml/g ≈ 0.988


With ρ = 0.593 for flour we get: 1 g flour = 1.686 ml.

ml/g ≈ 1.686


The grams to ml sugar conversion is: 1 g sugar = 1.27 ml.

ρ = 0.785


Grams into ml for butter: 1 g butter = 1.098 ml.

ρ = 0.911
The values above are averages for the kind and quality, to convert grams to milliliters in kitchen recipes.

We really recommend you look up the density for the exact stuff, and then use our grams to ml converter below to obtain the accurate result:

About our Grams to mL Converter

Our converter is located at the top of this page.

To use our calculator start by entering the amount of grams you want to convert.

Next, insert the value for rho.

The default volume unit is g/cm3, but you must change it if the density is entered in ft3 or any other unit different from the default.
