formula (gtt
stands for drops) and see some examples explaining how many drops are in 5 ml

How many drops are in a milliliter?
To find out how many drops are in a milliliter, we need to establish how many times we have to multiply the number of milliliters in a drop (0.05ml
) until we reach 1 ml
.
X drops × 0.05 gtt = 1 ml
20 drops × 0.05 gtt = 1 ml
Alternatively, we may divide 1 ml
by 0.05
to get the number of drops in 1 ml
.
(1/0.05) ml = 20 gtt
So, to answer, how many gtt are in a ml: 20 gtt is the equivalent of 1 ml.
One drop is equal to 0.05 ml
. Therefore:

To find out how many milliliters there are in a given amount of drops, you need to multiply the total number of drops (abbreviated as
gtt
) by0.05
:number of drops × 0.05 gtt = number of milliliters
(20 × 0.05) gtt = 1 ml
How to use the drops to ml conversion calculator?
To use our drops to ml conversion tool, follow these easy steps:
 See the calculator's panel.
 Fill in the number of drops you have to convert, and the volume in milliliters will appear.
 You can also convert milliliters to drops if you need to — simply fill the second row with milliliters, and the drop to ml conversion calculator will display how many drops that represent.
Now, you can convert gtt to ml and vice versa with ease!
Drops to milliliters conversion chart
Here is a chart with the most common and practical conversions showing how many gtt are in a ml:
Drops  Milliliters 

1  0.05 
2  0.1 
10  0.5 
20  1 
100  5 
500  25 
2000  100 
You can see here how many ml there are in 1 drop of liquid directly by looking at this conversion chart.

How many drops are there in a liter
A liter is the equivalent of 1000 ml
. We also know you need 20 drops
to reach 1 ml
. In order to calculate how many drops are in a liter, you have to multiply the number of milliliters present in a liter by 20 drops.
liter volume × 20 gtt = amount of drops in a liter
1000 ml × 20 gtt = 20,000 drops
So, a liter is the equivalent of 20,000 drops
. That's a lot of drops to count one by one, but this is precisely what this gtt to ml conversion calculator is for — so you can save some time with your calculations!
How many US fl oz is there in a drop
We know now that 1 drop is 0.05 ml
. But how much does that represents in US fl oz?
1 ml
is equal to 0.034 US fl oz
, and a drop is 0.05 ml
, so:
drop volume in ml × 0.034 US fl oz = drop volume in US fl oz
0.05 × 0.034 = 0.0017 US fl oz
1 drop is therefore equal to 0.0017 US fl oz.
How can I figure out how many drops are in my cup?
One cup contains 237 ml
— check out our ml to cups converter for more cup conversions. We also know how many drops are in 1 ml — 20 gtt
. So you need to multiply the volume of the cup by 20:
cup volume in ml × 20 gtt = amount of drops in a cup
237 ml × 20 gtt = 4,740 drops
A cup contains 4,740 drops. Try to enter 237 ml into the drops to ml conversion calculator to check for yourself!
How to measure milliliters at home
How can we measure milliliters at home? Unless you are ready to count drop by drop the volume of your liquid, there are some easier and faster ways to do it. Here are a few ways to measure volumes at home:

Use a measuring cup. You probably have one in your kitchen; if you don't, you can get one at any big store. Those cups have indications showing how much liquid you need to pour to reach the number of milliliters you need.

Use a syringe — those are similar to measuring cups but usually are for smaller and more precise volumes of liquid. Just like measuring cups, they have indications on the side about how much liquid you have inside the syringe.

Measure with a scale. You can use one of our volume to weight converters to determine how much the amount of liquid weighs, and then you will just have to use a scale to weigh your liquid. Let's say you need 100 ml of milk — thanks to our calculators, you will find out that 100 ml of milk weighs 103.5 g. Use a scale and pour 103.5 g of milk, and you will have 100 ml!

Look at the bottle. Bottles of liquid usually have the number of milliliters written on them; you won't need to do any grams or drops to milliliters conversion.
