  • Medicine dilution

    Hello everyone, can somebody answer this:

    270mg of medicine X is diluted in 50ml bag of sodium chloride. It all fits in 50ml bag after dilution. What's the concentration of the medicine X in mg/ml in this scenario? Thanks!

    I'm pretty sure you really mean 500 mL of saline, which is sodium chloride and water. Anyway 270 mg/500 mg = 0.54 mg/mL. That assumes the medicine doesn't add a significant volume.
