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.

Grams measure mass (weight), milliliters measure capacity (volume). There is no direct conversion from weight to volume, because this conversion depends on the substance. One cup of water is heavier than one cup of oil, but weighs less than one cup of plum.

To convert between weight and volume you need to know density of the substance.

You might find helpful our online weight/volume converter though. It "knows" densities of over 400 various substances and does the calculations for you. See here:
