### Fluid Ounces To Milliliters Example Problem

A soda can contains 12 fluid ounces of soda. What is this volume in milliliters?

### Solution

First, start out with the conversion formula between fluid ounces and milliliters:

1 fluid ounce = 29.57 milliliters

Set up the conversion so the desired unit will be canceled out. In this case, we want milliliters to be the remaining unit.

Volume in milliliters = (volume in fluid ounces) x (29.57 milliliters/1 fluid ounce.)

Volume in milliliters = (12 x 29.57) milliliters

Volume in milliliters = 354.84 milliliters

### Answer

A 12 fluid ounce soda can contains 354.82 milliliters.
