Ten milliliters is 1/100 of a liter. In everyday operations, this is a small volume. In a standard U.S. cup, which holds 8 fluid ounces, there are 236.588 milliliters. When working with chemical compounds or on the microscopic level, 10 milliliters may be a relatively large amount.
A milliliter is a measuring unit used in countries that employ both the Imperial and International systems. Used to measure volume, the milliliter is equal to 1 cubic centimeter, which allows for an easy conversion to the International system. It is commonly used in medicine and cooking.
