Default Re: mg/L to mmol/L

g/L ÷ molar mass = mol/L

mg/L ÷ molar mass = mmol/L

remember to include the counter ion in your calculation as well, if it is included to start with.

If you have a "nitrate" then it is something like "potassium nitrate", or "calcium nitrate", or "copper nitrate", etc. The metal ion (counter ion) may be included when converting from mols to grams. If you try something like Cu(No3)2 with and without the copper included, you will find it makes a big difference to your result.

I don't think this explains it very well, are you able to go to your tutors for more help? - Good luck with your studies.

M is an abbreviation for Molar, a concentration of 1 mole per liter. "mM" is millimolar, or millimole per liter.

You have to know what the dissolved substance is and its molar mass in grams per mole. Just multiply by the molar mass to get milligrams per liter.

Hi there, as long as the concentration is the same you can make them up in any size you need to. For example, if you want a 4µM solution, but you only want 100mL of it, then you use 0.4µmoles of material, and make this up to 100mL. Still the same concentration.
