How many mi-liters in 150g?

Usually to convert from a unit of volume (milliliters) to a unit of mass (grams), you need to have density as a conversion factor. If your problem is about water, for instance, its density is 1g/1mL, which means you can set up your problem like this: 150g x 1mL/1g = 150 mL This is the factor-label method of conversions. The grams cancel out, and you are left with only milliliters.
