Quandaries and Queries


Hello, my name is Iwan, a grade 9 student
I was just wondering whether a millilitre was equal to a millimetre, if not, what is there difference.



Hi Iwan,

Millilitres and millimeters are measurement units for entirely different concepts. Millilitres are units of volume and millimeters are units of length. Both are quite small. One teaspoon is approximately 5 millilitres and a millilmeter is approximately the thickness of a tab on a pop can.
