What is the difference between a cc (cubic centimeter) and an mL (milliliter)?


There is no difference between a cc (cubic centimeter) and an mL (milliliter). They are equal metric measures for fluid volume (1 cc = 1 mL), so cc measurements equal mL amounts.

This measurement is equal to one thousandth of a liter, which is 1.057th of a quart. To give you a visual reference point, there are 5 milliliters in a teaspoon.
