The abbreviation for milliliters is ml or mL. MathisFun.com explains that 20 drops of water makes about 1 milliliter, while one teaspoon holds approximately 5 milliliters. A liter of pure water has a mass of 1 kilogram at 4 degrees Celsius. Water at both warmer and colder temperatures is less dense. Products like milk, soda and gas are often sold by the liter.

Other common prefixes that precede basic units are deci-, centi- and kilo-. Deci- indicates one-tenth of the basic unit, so 10 deciliters make 1 liter. Centi- means one-hundredth, so 100 centiliters make up 1 liter. Kilo- indicates 1,000. A kiloliter is 1,000 liters. Because the metric system is based on powers of 10, conversions within the system often require little more than moving the decimal point to the right or left.
