Q:

# How do you convert mg to ml?

A:

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.

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.

• A:

The formula for density, which is mass divided by volume, can be manipulated to have the volume as the unknown. Given the mass and the density, the volume can be found by dividing the mass by the density.

• 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.

Filed Under:
• A:

The conversion of milligrams to milliliters is dependent on density and can be found using the formula volume = mass/density, where the volume is in milliliters, the mass in milligrams and the density in milligrams per milliliter. The various densities of different substances give different mass to volume ratios.
