Notice: 1 liter (L) = 1000 milliliters (mL) of water = 1 kg and 0.001 liter (L) = 1 milliliter (mL) = 1 cubic centimeter (cm³) = 1ccm
1 kilogram (kg) = 1000 grams (g) and 0.001 kilogram (kg) = 1 gram (g) - 1 gram = 1000 milligrams (g)
1 microgram (µg) = 0.001 milligram (mg) = 0.000001 gram (g) and 1 hectoliter (hL) = 100 liters of water = 100 kg

1 liter (L) of water weighs 1 kilogram (kg) and has a volume of 1 dm3 (cubic decimeter) at a temperature of 3.98°C and an air pressure of 1013.25 hPa.
1 milliter (mL) of water weighs 1 gram (g) and has a volume of 1 cm3 (cubic centimeter) at a temperature of 3.98°C and an air pressure of 1013.25 hPa.

An often asked question: How many millimeters are in a liter? A litre is a volume and a millimeter is a length or distance.
A meaningless question. Mostly there is meant: How many cubic millimeters, mm3 or cm3 are in a liter of water?
Would you ever have asked how many inches (unit of length) are in a gallon of liquid (unit of volume - capacity)?
Enter in the box at "Reference = 1 liter" a 1 and look what you get at "1 cubic millimeter cmm = 1 mm3".
