lb equals 6061 mg kg

    Percentage (w/v) means number of grams of drug present per 100 mL of the solution. Here, the strength is 2.09 %, which means, there is 2.09 g of drug dissolved per 100 mL of a lotion. We need to determine the weight (in mg) of drug present in 290 mL of it.

    `∴ (2.09 \quad g)/(100 \quad mL) = x/(290 \quad mL) ⇒ x = 6.061 \quad g`

    1 g equals 1000 mg.

    ∴ there will be `6.061 g × (1000 mg)/(1 g) = 6061` mg drug present. (Ans).
