Q:

How do you convert mg to ml?

A:

Quick Answer

To convert milligrams (mg) to milliliters (ml), the number of milligrams must be multiplied by the density of the liquid, which equals the volume in liters,and then divided by 1,000 to convert liters to milliliters. The density of each liquid is unique.

Full Answer

The density for acetic acid is 1.049. To find out how many milliliters of standard acetic acid could be made with 10 milligrams of acetic acid, 10 milligrams must be multiplied by the density (1.049), which equals 10.49 liters. To convert this number from liters to milliliters, 10.49 is divided by 1,000, because there are 1,000 milliliters per liter. Thus, 10 milligrams of acetic acid could make a stock solution of 0.01049 milliliters of acetic acid.

  • Q:

    How do you convert 1 mg into ml?

    A:

    To convert a milligram into milliliters, you must first know the density, or mass/volume ratio. Convert mass in milligrams to the unit of mass expressed in the density, then divide mass by density to convert to volume units. If the volume unit is not in milliliters, convert it to milliliters.

  • Q:

    What is the difference between CC and mL?

    A:

    CCs (cubic centimeters) and mL (milliliters) are both units of volume that are equal to each other, but derived from different base units. A volume in CCs can be converted to mL simply by multiplying by 1, because 1 CC is equal to 1 mL.

  • Q:

    How do you convert 15 ml to grams?

    A:

    As grams are a unit of mass and milliliters are a unit of volume, you need to know the density of the substance you are measuring in milliliters in order to convert the measurement from milliliters to grams. In the case of water, 1 gram = 1 milliliter, so 15 milliliters of water = 15 grams.
