Also I need to convert apothecary units:

30 gr = _______ounce and
1 fl dram = _____ fl oz.

convert household measurements:

10 ml = ______tsp

first problem
1 gram = 1,000,000 micrograms
so if you divide each side by 1 gram you get
1 = 10^6 micrograms/1 gram
it's equal to one because 1 gram and 10^6 micrograms are the same thing. it's just like saying 3/3 = 1 and t/t = 1
moreover, if you multiply anything by 1, that anything is still the same thing. so if you multiply 0.027 grams by 1, it's still 0.027. if you multiply 0.027 grams by 10^6 micrograms/1 gram, the mass is still gonna be worth 0.027, it's still the same amount, just the unit changes.
0.027 grams x 10^6 micrograms
---------------
1 gram
so you multiply 0.027 grams by 1 (which in this case is 10^6 micrograms/1 gram). the unit of grams cancel out so you get
0.027 x 10^6 micrograms
which simplifies to
27,000 micrograms or 2.7x10^4 micrograms

alright here's an easier way, skipping all the background and work.
1 gram = 1,000,000 micrograms
you have 0.027 grams, so multiply both sides of the equation by 0.027
so now you have
0.027 grams = 27,000 micrograms
just do the same thing to the other problems. you should have the equalities in your text, or you can easily find them online

How did you figure out the 150ml and the 200 ml. 50ml is the only volume given - how did you figure a final volume to divide the parts into and then multiply parts by the volume?
Could you explain this - I'm not getting it.
Thanks

I am searching for the equation to use to dilute a solution of 40 mg/ml to make a solution of 5mg/ml

I have a 30ml vial of Saline and a 5ml vial of Kenalog 40mg/ml

I need to end with a 30ml vial of Kenalog 5mg/ml

Does anyone have the equation I should use to calculate my answer?
I have hit the wall and this simple (I assume) solution just has me floored!!

Prolixin is a antipsychotic drug. Dr. is prescribing the drug in liquid form so we will need to figure out how many ml's is 6mg from the sig provided.

4mg = 5ml
6mg = X ml ------ 6mg x 5ml / 4mg = 7.5ml

{So 7.5ml equals 6mg of the drug}

Per dose: 7.5ml
Per day: 7.5ml x 3x a day (tid) = 22.5ml

Entire treatment: 22.5ml x 90 days= 2025ml (that is alot of liqiuid medication)

There is a 1:3 ratio of Amoxicillin to Calcium Carbonate. The same insufflation needs to be created for an infant; the total weight of the new insuffulation is 300 mg. What is weight of Calcium Carbonate for the new insuffulation and what is the weight of Amoxicillin for the new insuffulation?

What is the simple wayto convert 222mcg into ml???

What is the simple wayto convert 222mcg into ml???

One way is , Let the aamount of amoxicillin be x, then Calcium carbonate is 3x

therefore x + 3x = 300 mg

4x = 300 mg
x = 75 mg Amoxicillin
3x= 225 mg Calcium carbonate.

Let me know if this answer is correct. If not i will try with another method.

Snce KCL is administered 80 ml in 1 hr

hence for 1 l i.e 1000 ml will be given every 12.5 hrs

40 mEq = 12.5 hrs
hence in 1 hr
40 /12.5 = 3.2 mEq /hr
3.2 mEq/ hr is the answer.

This is a dilution problem, (Q1*C1 = Qf*Cf). Let's convert the measurements to friendly appearances: 0.5 L = 500 mL, 1:5000 = 0.02%, 1:1000 = 0.10%; Q1*(0.10%) = (500 mL)*(0.02%), Q1 = 100 mL; Qf = Qh2o + Q1, (500 mL) = Qh2o + (100 mL), Qh2o = 400 mL. You need 100 milliliters of the stock solution with 400 milliliters of sterile water to make half a liter of 0.02% epinephrine solution.
