How do you convert milligram per liter to milligram per kilogram?
1 mg per litre is 1 mg per kilogram, but only if you think of pure water. 1 litre of pure water weighs 1 kilogram.
One litre is equal to one Kilogram of H2O. Therefore, in consideration to solutes in water, a milligram per litre is equal to a milligram per kilogram. 1 kilogram = 1000 grams. 1 gram = 1000 milligrams. Therefore 1 kilogram = 1000x1000 = 1 000 000 milligrams. Back to the first statement, substituting 1 000 000 milligrams for kilogram: a milligram per litre is equal to a milligram per 1 000 000 milligrams, which is…
The difference between a milligram and a kilogram is quantity. With one gram as the basic unit of measure, one milligram is one one thousandth (1/1000) of a gram. One kilogram is one thousand (1000) grams. Therefore one kilogram is one million milligrams (1000 milligrams per gram times 1000 grams per kilogram).
milligram divided by 1000 will give you grams, now use the molecular weight to get the number of moles. next divide dl by 10 to get liters. now you got moles per liter :) There is another simple way to convert miligram per dl into milimoles: 1gm/dl-multiply by 0.055= mm/litre and reverse mm/L divided by 0.055=mg/dl
