Dear forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

How do I convert 720 mililiters to grams?

No general conversion is possible. You have to know the mass density of the material

As a point of reference, the density of water is 1 g/mL. Oils and alcohol are a little less, water with moderate amounts of salt, sugar, or other solid ingredients dissolved in it tend to be a little more.

For food products, the USDA has a pretty good database which collects data provided by manufacturers from the nutritional information labels on US foodstuffs sold to consumers.
