### How many macrograms are there in 1 millimeter?

There is no such measure as a macrogram, although there is a
microgram.
Having said that, a microgram is a measure of mass. A millimetre
is a measure of length or distance. The two measure different
things and,according to basic principles of dimensional analysis,
conversion from one to the other is not valid.
The question is like asking about the mass of your walk to
school.

### What is the equivalent of micrograms in 100mililiters?

This question cannot be answered sensibly. A millilitre is a
measure of volume, with dimensions [L3]. A microgram is a measure
of mass, with dimensions [M]. The two measure different things and
basic dimensional analysis teaches that you cannot convert between
measures with different dimensions such as these without additional
information.
As a simple mental exercise consider a microgram of air and a
microgram of lead. They will have very different volumes.
