A Brief History of Volume Measurements

The concept of measuring volume dates back to ancient times, with different systems developed independently across various cultures. The milliliter, part of the metric system, was later standardized in the 19th century for international use. The ounce, part of the imperial system, has its roots in the Roman monetary system, where it was used as a unit of weight. Over time, the ounce evolved into a unit of volume in the British Imperial and U.S. customary systems. This historical divergence is why today we have different systems, necessitating tools like our mL to oz Converter for accurate translations between these units.
