Red face converting liters to milligrams

I'm taking a bio class and I have to convert 10 liters into milligrams. How do i do that? The instructor explained the problem to me, but his words went straight in one ear and out the other.

Need to know Specific gravity of whatever you're putting into that liter.

Default Re: converting liters to milligrams

a milligram (mg) is a weight, a liter(L) is a volume. However, you can compare the two using density. The density of water is 1, which means 1 liter of water weighs 1kg at a specific temperature and pressure.

10L of water weighs 10kg.

10kg = 10,000g = 10,000,000mg.

Other substances (paint, blood, milk etc) have different densities, and weigh different amounts.

Good luck with your class!
