It may seem like a simple question, but how many milliliters in a quart can be quite tricky to answer. You must be able to work with two measuring systems: the imperial system and the metric system.

**Imperial Vs. Metric Systems**

The imperial system of measurement is used in the United States, Liberia, and Myanmar, while the metric system of measurement is used in most other countries in the world.

The imperial system uses customary units, such as gallons, quarts, pints, cups, tablespoons, and teaspoons. The metric system uses grams, kilograms, milligrams, liters, and milliliters.

**What Is a Quart?**

A quart is a measure of volume in the imperial system. Quarts are used to measure liquids, such as milk, water, or juice. A quart is equal to ¼ of a gallon, 2 pints, 4 cups, or 32 fluid ounces. One quart (in the imperial system) is equal to 0.946 liters (in the metric system). The abbreviation for a quart is *qt*.

**What Is a Milliliter?**

A milliliter is a measure of volume in the metric system. Milliliters are also used to measure liquids. A liter is the volume of 1 kilogram of water at 4 degrees celsius. One milliliter is 1/1,000th of a liter or 0.001 liters. There are 1,000 milliliters in a liter. The abbreviation for a milliliter is *ml* or *mL*. Common kitchen measurements are often given in milliliters, such as 250mL of milk or juice.

A milliliter is sometimes referred to as a cubic centimeter, *cc*. For example, a 5-milliliter syringe may be labeled with either 5 mL or 5 cc. When reading measurements in milliliters, it is important to remember that you can use milliliters interchangeably with cubic centimeters.

**How Many Milliliters in a Quart?**

There are 946.352946 milliliters in a quart. It is not an easy whole number because you are converting between the imperial and metric systems. If rounded, there are about 946 milliliters in a quart.

**Converting Between Milliliters and Quarts**

The conversion factor between milliliters and quarts is 946 mL per qt. You can convert from milliliters to quarts or from quarts to milliliters by multiplying or dividing by 946.

### Quarts To Milliliters

### Quarts(qt) to Milliliters(ml) Conversion

Type a value in the Quarts(qt) field to convert the value to Milliliters(ml):

Milliliters(ml):

To convert quarts into milliliters, you multiply the number of quarts by 946.

Number of milliliters = Number of quarts × 946

For example, if you want to know how many milliliters are in 3 quarts, you multiply 946 by 3.

Number of milliliters = Number of quarts × 946

Number of milliliters = 3 × 946

Number of milliliters = 2,838

So, there are about 2,838 milliliters in 3 quarts.

### Milliliters To Quarts

### Milliliters(ml) to Quarts(qt) Conversion

Type a value in the Milliliters(ml) field to convert the value to Quarts(qt):

Quarts(qt):

To convert milliliters into quarts, you divide the number of milliliters by 946.

Number of quarts = Number of milliliters ÷ 946

For example, if you want to know how many quarts are in 4,730 milliliters, you divide 4,730 by 946.

Number of quarts = Number of milliliters ÷ 946

Number of quarts = 4,730 ÷ 946

Number of quarts = 5

So, there are 5 quarts in 4,730 milliliters.

**Conversion Table for Quarts and Milliliters**

Quarts (qt) | Milliliters (mL) |

¼ qt (1 cup) | 236.5 mL |

½ qt (1 pint) | 473 mL |

1 qt | 946 mL |

2 qt | 1,892 mL |

3 qt | 2,838 mL |

4 qt (1 gallon) | 946 mL |

**Bottom Line**

Figuring out how many milliliters in a quart can be difficult if you don't understand the two systems of measurement. To determine the answer, one must know that a quart is a measurement from the imperial system and a millimeter is a measurement from the metric system. The final answer is there are about 946 milliliters in a quart.
