if 10 mL of a solution contains 28 mg of a drug, then how much drug will be contained in 1 pint of this solution?

lb equals 1324.74 mg kg



    In the first part, let's determine the mg quantity of drug present per mL of the solution. 28 mg of the drug is present in each 10 mL of the solution.
    [10 mL]/[28 mg]=[1 mL]/[x]
    So, x =2.8 mg

    In the second part, we need to first determine the volume of 1 pint the solution in mL unit. The students should remember the conversion table (provided at the end).
    1 ml = 2.8 mg
    1 pint y

    Or,
    1 ml = 2.8 mg
    16 × 29.57 ml y
    Then, y = 1324.74 mg.

    • 1 fl. oz. = 29.57 mL
    • 1 cup = 8 fl. oz.
    • 1 pt. = 16 fl. oz.
    • 1 qt. = 32 fl. oz.
    • 1 gallon = 128 fl. oz.
