Q:

How can you convert between milligrams and milliliters?

A:

Milligrams can be converted to milliliters by converting milligrams to grams, and then converting grams to milliliters. There are 100 milligrams in a gram and 1 gram in a milliliter.

The milligram (mg) and the gram (g) are both measurements of weight or mass in the metric measurement system. One gram is equal to 1000 milligrams. The milliliter (ml) is a measurement of volume in the metric measurement system. One milliliter is equal to 1 gram; there is a 1:1 ratio between the two units of measure. To convert an amount from milligrams to milliliters, divide the amount by 1000 to convert to grams, and divide the new amount by 1 to convert to milliliters.

  • Q:

    How do you convert milligrams to milliliters?

    A:

    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.

    What is 300 milliliters in grams?

    A:

    Because the milliliter is a unit of volume, and grams are a unit of mass, the answer to this question depends on what material one is measuring. For one of the most common materials, water, the conversion is simple. Because 1 milliliter of water equals 1 gram of mass, 300 milliliters of water weighs 300 grams.
