# How do you convert milligrams to milliliters?

In order to convert milligrams to milliliters, one must know the density of the substance; if the density is measured in milligrams per milliliter, the milligrams of mass of the object being measured are divided by the density of the substance to determine the volume in millimeters. Because density is generally not listed in milligrams per milliliter, it is likely that some calculations must be done to convert the density into the appropriate units.

To convert 1,000 milligrams of milk into millileters, one must first determine the density of the milk, which is 1.03 grams per cubic centimeter. A simple mathematical conversion indicates that this density is equivalent to 1,030 milligrams per millileter because there are 1,000 milligrams in a gram and a cubic centimeter is equal to a millimeter. Dividing the 1,000 milligrams of mass by the density of 1,030 milligrams per millileter results in a volume of 0.97 millilters.

 If the substance in question has a density of d grams per litre (or equivalently, d mg per ml) then the conversion is. mass = volume*density. so. mg = ml*d. It should be obvious from http://wiki.answers.com/Q/What_is_the_formula_for_...
 I would be very surprised if an eyedropper had units in milligrams. Milligrams are a unit of weight, not volume - and two objects of the same weight can have vastly different volumes http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=200812...
 1. Enter the value of milliliters into the calculator. This is the volume of the substance, or the amount of space it takes up. For example, if you had a beaker holding 28 mL of a http://www.ehow.com/how_8559517_convert-ml-mg.html
 ml is a unit of volume while mg is a unit of weight. So they are not convertible. If it is water, 1 liter of pure water equals 1 kg (kilogram). http://www.kgbanswers.com/whats-the-conversion-for...
