### How many mg in one liter?

mg is milligram, a measure of weight. Liter is a measure of
volume. A liter of WATER would weigh 1 million milligrams- but a
liter of alcohol would weigh about 700,000 mg- since alcohol is
lighter than water. A liter of mercury would weigh MUCH more, since
it is heavier than water. So, to answer your question, we would
need to know a liter of WHAT?

### 8700 milliliters is how many pounds?

Liters, milli or otherwise, measures volume. Pounds represent
weight. Unless one knows what there is 8,700 milliliters of, one
cannot know what it's weight would be. T
As an example, the difference between the weight of a liter of
lead and a liter of water would be quite noticeable.
A liter of water weighs 1 kilogram or 2.2 pounds
(approximately).
Therefore, 8,700 milliliters of water, which is the same as 8.7
liters of water, would weigh 19.14 pounds. (2.2 pounds times 8.7
liters)
As lead is 11.4 times as dense as water, we can see that 8,700
milliliters of lead, or 8.7 liters of lead, would weigh 218.19
pounds. (25.08 pounds times 8.7 liters)
