as noted: a cc is a cubic centimeter, and is therefore a unit of volume.
It is most often used in density measurements, and is applied to liquids
and solids. For example, granite usually has a density of 3 grams per
cubic centimeter. Water has a typical density of 1 gram per cubic
centimeter, and is therefore 1/3 as heavy as granite. Ice has a density of
0.9 grams per cubic centimeter, and therefore floats on water. CC's are
useful, because it's easy to cut a cube out of most materials...
ML, on the other hand, is only used for liquids, and is simply 1/1000 of
a liter, It is a mythical unit created by the Europeans to make
themselves unpalatable to the Naciremas. Hope this makes everything crystal
clear... Cheers, Ed.
