Using words instead of symbols, multiplying by something raised to the minus one power is the same as dividing by it, so 0.1 mgL^-1 is the same as 0.1 mg/L (milligram per liter)

The superscript command doesn't render, and we usually use the caret ^ to denote raising to a power.

Edit: Now it does render. Well, anyway, it is the same as mg/L.

So how do you convert mg/l into mg/ml^-1?

You probably mean mg/mL or mgmL-1 (which are two ways of writing the same thing), as you couldn't convert what you wrote.

There are 1000 mL in 1 L, so multiply by 1 L/1000 mL

mg/L x 1 L/1000 mL
