lb equals 1 : 840 kg

    Ratio strength will have 1 in the numerator (in g unit). Let us, therefore, determine, what volume of this solution will contain 1 g of drug.
    ` (0.595 \quad g)/(500 \quad mL)=(1 \quad g)/(x) therefore x = 840`.
    `therefore (1 \quad g)/(840 \quad mL)` or 1 : 840 will be the expression. Answer.
