How many milliliters of an aromatic mouth wash can you prepare with 3300 milligrams of drug so that the strength becomes 1.65% w/v?

Click on the button below to see the answer and explanations

lb equals 200 mL kg

    Percentage (w/v) means number of grams of drug present per 100 mL of the solution. Here, the strength is 1.65 %, which means, there is 1.65 g of drug dissolved per 100 mL of an aromatic mouth wash. We need to determine the volume (in mL) of an aromatic mouth wash which will contain 3300 mg (equals to `3300 mg × (1g)/(1000mg) = 3.3 g`) of the drug.

    `∴ (100 \quad mL)/(1.65 \quad g) = x/(3.3 \quad g) ⇒ x = 200 \quad mL`

    ∴ The volume will be 200 mL (Ans).
