10 mg/mL = 10 g/L

50 g of something that's 10 g/L would have a volume of 5 L, or 0.005 mL.

Thumbs up Re: to convert mg/ml to ugs (micrograms)

I would need more information......

for example if you asked, how can I convert 10mg/ml to ug/ml I would answer, multiply 10mg/ml x 1000 ug/mg = 10000ug/ml.

To get from a 10mg/ml solution to a 50ug/ml solution you would take 5.0ml of your first solution and dilute that to 1000ml, preferably using a volumetric flask to get 50ug/ml.

Can anyone help me convert 20.8mg/ml into 3.47ug/ml? It needs to go into a 10ml final volume. Thank you!

Hi, please don't be offended, but why do you need to do this if you don't know how? - I'm a bit concerned at the number of people asking complicated medical or biochemistry type dilution questions without understanding the mechanics of dilution? - Thanks.

Question Re: to convert mg/ml to ugs (micrograms)

How would you dilute a concentrattion of 620mg/ml to a working concentration of 310ug/ml?

Take any convenient volume and dilute it to 2000X that volume

(or decide what final volume you want, divide it by 2000 and take that much of your stock solution)

For example, to make 1 L of the dilute solution, take 0.5 mL of stock solution, dilute to 1 L in volumetric flask.

They are called students. This is how they learn.

By asking strangers on the Internet? We're pretty good (hopefully) but one might hope that their instructors would instruct better.

I do appreciate your point, but bear in mind that if you are a student asking your tutor, your tutor knows what experiment you are doing, and what you should and shouldn't understand about the subject or field. People come on here without giving any background, we could be giving totally inappropriate information to a crook or psycho.

I'd MUCH rather people said what discipline they are studying, what sort of experiment they are doing, and why they think they don't understand what they are trying to do.

Sorry for the rant, by the way.
