In this webpage we will demonstrate how to convert 100 mL to L (milliliters to liters) and provide you multiple ways to accomplish this. The first way is using our online milliliters to liters converter, which works for any given number of milliliters. Another is using the 100 mL to L conversion chart provided for the exact value of 100 milliliters. A third one is calculating this manually using conversion factors. All three methods will give the same answer of 0.1 liters.

Enter the number of milliliters (in this example it is 100 mL) that you want to convert to liters in the box below. This converter is not limited to only converting what 100 milliliters is in liters, but it works for any number of milliliters that is input. The amount will automatically be converted to liters without you needing to click anything else. To clear the values, you may click the ‘reset’ button. Note that this converter only works for changing mL to L (milliliters to liters), and not the other way around.
100 mL to L – Unit Definition
What is a Liter?
A liter is a unit of volume based on the metric system and accepted under the SI system. It is equal to 1 cubic decimeter, 1000 cubic centimeters, or 1000 milliliters. It is also equivalent to 1/1000 of a cubic meter. A liter was previously defined based on the volume of a 1 kilogram of water held at around 4°C, which is the temperature of maximum density. The liter is most commonly used to measure volumes of liquids such as water or household chemicals. The liter is abbreviated with the symbol L, and may be alternatively spelled as litre.
What is a Milliliter?
A milliliter is a unit of volume based on the metric system and accepted under the SI system. The milliliter is often used to measure small volumes of liquids, such as for small bottles of beverages or household chemicals, or for liquids stored in small beakers, flasks, and graduated cylinders in laboratories. It is abbreviated as ml. It is equivalent to 1 cubic centimeter, or to 1/1000 of a cubic decimeter, or 1/1000 of a liter. Its previous definition was based on the volume of 1 gram of water at the temperature of maximum density. Sometimes, this is also spelled as millilitre.
100 mL to L – Conversion Chart & Reminder
In case you do not have the time to use the online milliliters to liters (mL to L) converter and input the number yourself, you can use this handy conversion chart to see the final result immediately. This result has been calculated ahead using the mL to L converter, so the result will be the same.
To remind You:
100 mL to L = 0.1 liters
100 mL in L = 0.1 liters
100 milliliters to liters = 0.1 L
100 Milliliters to Liters
In the previous sections, we have presented two options for converting 100 milliliters to liters. The first option was to use our online converter. However, there may be times when one does not have access to the internet, or specifically to this webpage.
The second option was to use the 100 mL to L conversion chart, which saves any effort because it has the final value already. But like any conversion chart, its use is limited to that single value, and furthermore, one may not always carry conversion charts around with them. Therefore, it is beneficial to know how to do this conversion manually, using a hand calculator.
The succeeding section describes the manual procedure to convert 100 milliliters to liters. Like the converter, this is a general procedure and can be used to convert any number of milliliters to liters. For this case, where we wish to convert 100 mL to L, we will use this manual procedure and show that the result is the same as those obtained using the online converter and the conversion chart.
This process can then be extended for any other measurement in milliliters, to convert the given to liters. We will use the definitions given earlier to carry out this conversion.
Convert 100 mL to L
In the above section containing the definitions, a liter has been defined as equivalent to 1000 milliliters. This means that there is a constant proportion between the two, so just as 1 liter is equivalent to 1000 milliliters, multiplying both values by the same number will still give a true statement.
For example, if we were to multiply both numbers by 2, then:
1000 milliliters multiplied by 2 would become 2000 milliliters, and1 liter multiplied by 2 would become 2 liters
The new numbers are still equivalent, that is, 2000 milliliters is equivalent to 2 liters.
Similarly, dividing both values by the same number will also give a valid conversion. For example, if we divide both numbers by 1000, then:
1000 milliliters divided by 1000 would become 1 milliliter, and1 liter divided by 1000 would become 0.001 liters
The new numbers are still equivalent, that is, 1 milliliter is equivalent to 0.001 liters.
Based on this statement, since we want to convert 100 milliliters to liters, we can multiply both these values by 100 to get our desired result.
Therefore, this would show that 100 milliliters is equivalent to 0.1 liters.

How Many L is 100 mL?
The above calculations show that when we convert 100 mL to L, we get the result of 0.1 liters. This final answer is obtainable by all three methods we have presented. From our first method, entering in 100 milliliters in the online converter will give this answer of 0.1 liters. Our second method, the conversion table, shows the same result of 0.1 liters.
Our third method is much more detailed as it shows the step-by-step manual calculation of how to convert 100 mL to L. It begins by using the definition of the liter in terms of liters, and using the conversion factor 1000 liters to 1 liter, creates a new proportion using the given of 100 milliliters. This method also arrives at the same answer of 0.1 liters.
All three methods used agree on the same answer, and so it is up to the reader’s discretion which of the three methods is preferable. The online 100 mL to L converter is simple to use, provided one has access to this webpage. The 100 milliliters to liters conversion chart can be printed out and carried around for convenience, but only specific values can be recorded on it (it would be difficult to record every possible value, especially those involving decimals, on it).
Finally, the manual mL to L calculation method may be difficult to understand at first, but once it has been learned, anybody can use it anytime, to convert any number of milliliters into liters.
