I need help! I've looked all over for answers, and maybe it's just not possible...

we have to do a "thing", and I need to convert grams into mililitres (g into mL). how can I do this?

thanks for helping!

Hi Chantal,

The reason that you are having trouble finding a conversion is that grams and milliliters measure different things. A gram is a unit of weight and a milliliter is a unit of volume. To convert one to the other you need to know what substance you are measuring. If you are measuring water then one milliliter weighs approximately one gram. If you are measuring mercury then one milliliter weighs approximately 13.59 grams.
