1.8ML Makes Up Each Dose
by: Zachary

Given:

Powder "C" is a 330mg/ml Concentation
Patient needs a 600ml dose.
Each dose is How many MLs?

2mls would be too much, at 660ml; and we know that 1ml (330mg) is too little. So the answer will be somewhere between 1ml and 2ml.

We have final dose = 600mg dose

600mg = 330mg/ml times "X"

1ml/330mg times 600mg = "X"

1.81ml = 600mg divided by 330mg/1ml
