  • 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.
