    It is generally accepted that 20 drops will equal 1 milliliter.

    So one drop will be 0.05 ml.

    It depends on the liquid.

    Some has a greater cohesive bonding. Like mercury for example will not stick to the sides of a test tube like water does. Also the size of the molecules will also determine how much is in one drop.

    for water, or a liquid similar in viscosity to water, and a standard chemical dropper, 20 drops = ~1 ml.

    There are about 16 drops of water per milliliter or 80 drops per teaspoon.

    For plain water you can count 20 drops per ml.

    depends on the liquid

    dropleting is mostly a surface tension phenomena, but specific gravity also figures into it

    the method of drop formation plays a big part

    Different liquids will form different size drops. It's way beyond my ability to explain the concepts of viscosity and surface tension.
