If 1950 milligrams of drug is present in 250 milliliter of a sterile liquid preparation, then determine the strength in percent `w/v`

lb equals 0.78 % kg

    1950 mg equals `1950/1000` or 1.95 g of drug. Percentage (w/v) means number of grams of drug present per 100 mL of the solution.

    `∴ (1.95 \quad g)/(250 \quad mL) = x/(100 \quad mL) ⇒ x = 0.78 \quad g`

    ∴ the concentration would be `0.78 % w/v` (Ans).
