Keep in mind that you are converting a weight into a liquid, so they are not equal conversions.

Depending on the specific conversion you’re doing, they will not be comparable because of this.

You will need to know some other information as there is not a simple formula. You’ll also need to know the concentration or weight of the object. All products, specifically over the counter and prescription drugs are required to list the concentration. This will be listed as something along the lines of 25 mg per teaspoon.

1 teaspoon = 5 ml

You’ll then be able to make the conversion.

If you need 50 mg, then you will need 2 teaspoons or 10 ml.

To simply convert the milligrams to milliliters, you need the concentration, otherwise you won’t have everything you need. It requires 2 numbers, not just 1.

Many people will argue that it is simply a movement of decimals or a formula such as 12 inches equals 1 foot, but it’s not. This confusion comes as a result of many people simply not understanding the metric system. The metric system does require decimals to be moved, but only within the same unit of measurement. If you go from milligrams to kilograms, then you’ll be using the same measurement.

However, you are going from a weight to a liquid, so it will require an additional form of measurement. The same is true for the US system of weights and measures. You can’t convert liquid ounces to weight ounces unless you know the weight of the object. Flour, eggs, and milk all have different weights, so it’s important to know what you’re dealing with in order to make an accurate conversion.

For the conversion of milligram to milliliter, you should know that how much milligrams you need to mix in a 1 milliliter of the solvent. The conversion is totally dependent on how much proportion do you need. I just quote an example there, as you need 10 mg of the dose within one ml of solvent. The proportion in this case will be 10mg/1 ml.

now, you want to calculate "y" mg in "x" ml, then

10mg/1 ml = y/x

So, if you have 50 mg to mix then,

10mg/1 ml = 50/x

In this case x, milliliter is 5 ml for 50 mg. In other words the conversion of milligram into milliliter is only possible if you know the mass per unit volume of the two or the proportion of the two.

Thanks, Amber 22!
I did finally figure it out; the solution is 20mg per mL, so I needed a dose of .5mL.
(It's a steroid solution for one of my cats , who has stomatitis.) I had simply forgotten how much to draw up, and couldn't get through to the doctor.

One milliliter (ml) is 1/1000 of a liter and is a unit of volume. 1 milligram (mg) is 1/1000 of a gram and is a unit of mass/weight. This implies we require an additional snippet of data keeping in mind the end goal to have the capacity to change over the estimation over. That additional snippet of data is a thickness or grouping of the substance you are utilizing.It depends on the density of the material. At 3.98 deg C, pure liquid water has a density of 1g/cm^3; therefore, 1 milliliter of water weighs 1 milligram at 3.98 deg C.If you are need to know more about Milligrams To Milliliters conversions then use this unit converter.

No way to know without knowing the density of the ice cream. And ice cream is a substance that is well know for having a wide range of densities. Breyers, for example, is quite dense. Store brands tend to be pumped full of air and are less dense.

If this was water (at a specific temperature that I'm not remembering right now), however, I could tell you that 45mg = 45 ml. For ice cream, however, this conversion is not going to hold since ice cream will be more dense than water. I recmonded you Unit Conversion  through this you get more results about Unit Converter .

I need 650 of milk thistle. I have a bottle that says 40-50 drops is 1ml. How many drops should I take?

Mg is a measure of weight and milliliters is a measure of volume.  They cannot be converted unless one can know the density of the substance being measured.   A milliliter of molten lead will weigh more in milligrams than a milliliter of hydrogen peroxide, for example.

400 milligrams per much does that equate to on a syringe that measures in milliliters and if I was given a shot a day how much milliliters would that be per day over a seven day period
