Question from Nancy, a student:

I need to know how many ml are in 40 grams. So what is the base 1ml= how may grams

Hi Nancy,

Milliliters are units of volume and grams are units of mass (weight) so the conversion of one to the other depends on the material you are measuring. What you call the base, the number of grams in 1 ml is more properly called the density of the material. There are some examples in our responses to earlier questions, for example questions from Larissa, Jenn and Komal.
