The milliliter is a unit of volume in the metric system. It is equal to one-thousandth of a liter or about .034 fluid ounces. The cubic centimeter is also a unit of volume in the metric system. It corresponds to the volume of a cube that measures 1 centimeter by 1 centimeter by 1 centimeter.
Although the milliliter has replaced the use of cubic centimeters in several industries, the medical and automotive sectors still use cubic centimeters, particularly in the United States. In the medical field, for instance, cubic centimeters are used to measure doses of injectable medications.Learn more about Measurements
