We’re being asked to determine what type of quantity (for example, length, volume, density) does mL indicate.
Recall that the SI units for length volume and density are given as:
Also recall that metric Prefixes are “labels” that can be placed in front of base units. Whenever using the metric prefix chart, remember that “1” is associated with the metric prefix.
This means that mL is L with a metric prefix m: (m)L, therefore:
What type of quantity (for example, length, volume, density) do the following units indicate.
