'Amounts of substance' i guess?
« on: July 13, 2017, 02:51:36 PM »

Hi guys, can someone provide me a worked solution to this question. I've not learnt 'percentage solution' before:

"a 50kg patient requires 10mcg/kg/minute for 2 hours. this is to be delivered from a 0.1% solution, how much solution will they need in mL?".

Thank-you! :)

High there, xJax:, I'd like to welcome you to the chemical forums.  But I'd like to remind you to read our Forum Rules{click}, you agreed to them when you signed up, and they apply to everyone: new students, seasoned professionals, and people who just need to know right now.  We like to see some effort from you.  Let's work together:

The fractional percentage seems to be throwing you.  That's OK, that's the toughest part of this problem.  But work out the first bit for us -- 50 kg needs 10mcg (which means what?  This is jargon here, you must look up what it means, or just stick with the jargon and report it that way)/kg/min per 2hrs.  How much is that?

That all depends on how reasonable we're all willing to be.  I just want my friends back, except for Cartman, you can keep him.

Go like this
10mcg/Kg  = x mcg/ 50 Kg 
Then convert it from one minute to 2 Hours ( 2 hours = 120 minutes)
0.1 % means 0.1mcg per 100 mL
use it to get the answer.

I tried it and got 10mL as the answer. Is this correct?
