## Conversion formula

How to convert 500 milliliters to liters?

We know (by definition) that: $1\mathrm{ml}\approx 0.001\mathrm{liter}$

We can set up a proportion to solve for the number of liters.

$\frac{1\mathrm{ml}}{500\mathrm{ml}}\approx \frac{0.001\mathrm{liter}}{x\mathrm{liter}}$Now, we cross multiply to solve for our unknown $x$:

$x\mathrm{liter}\approx \frac{500\mathrm{ml}}{1\mathrm{ml}}*0.001\mathrm{liter}\to x\mathrm{liter}\approx 0.5\mathrm{liter}$Conclusion: $500\mathrm{ml}\approx 0.5\mathrm{liter}$

## Conversion in the opposite direction

The inverse of the conversion factor is that **1 liter is equal to 2 times 500 milliliters**.

It can also be expressed as: 500 milliliters is equal to $\frac{1}{2}$ liters.

## Approximation
