## Conversion formula

The conversion factor from liters to milliliters is 1000, which means that 1 liter is equal to 1000 milliliters:

1 L = 1000 ml

To convert 0.5 liters into milliliters we have to multiply 0.5 by the conversion factor in order to get the volume amount from liters to milliliters. We can also form a simple proportion to calculate the result:

1 L → 1000 ml

0.5 L → V(ml)

Solve the above proportion to obtain the volume V in milliliters:

V(ml) = 0.5 L × 1000 ml

V(ml) = 500 ml

The final result is:

0.5 L → 500 ml

We conclude that 0.5 liters is equivalent to 500 milliliters:

0.5 liters = 500 milliliters ## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 milliliter is equal to 0.002 × 0.5 liters.

Another way is saying that 0.5 liters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.002 milliliters.

## Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that zero point five liters is approximately five hundred milliliters:

0.5 L ≅ 500 ml

An alternative is also that one milliliter is approximately zero point zero zero two times zero point five liters.
