## Conversion formula

The conversion factor from milliliters to liters is 0.001, which means that 1 milliliter is equal to 0.001 liters:

1 ml = 0.001 L

To convert 500 milliliters into liters we have to multiply 500 by the conversion factor in order to get the volume amount from milliliters to liters. We can also form a simple proportion to calculate the result:

1 ml → 0.001 L

500 ml → V_{(L)}

Solve the above proportion to obtain the volume *V* in liters:

V_{(L)} = 500 ml × 0.001 L

V_{(L)} = 0.5 L

The final result is:

500 ml → 0.5 L

We conclude that **500 milliliters is equivalent to 0.5 liters**:

500 milliliters = 0.5 liters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case **1 liter is equal to 2 × 500 milliliters**.

Another way is saying that *500 milliliters is equal to 1 ÷ 2 liters*.

## Approximate result

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

500 ml ≅ 0.5 L

An alternative is also that *one liter is approximately two times five hundred milliliters*.
