##### 1g in 1L corresponds to 1mg in 1ml?
« on: June 18, 2013, 10:01:25 PM »
Once upon a time I would already know this but I've forgotten my classes.

If I dissolve 1g of a solid in 1L of water then would I be able to assume that I would have 1mg in 1ml? What info about the solid would I need?

Sorry for the elementary question but thank you for helping me.

Yes, 1 g/L = 1 mg/mL

One can use units cancellation to demonstrate this.  It is not a bad skill to develop.

1L = 1000.0mL
1g = 1000.0mg
