Dear forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

you can't. they are two different things. unless i suppose you knew how much your liquid weighed...

so 5 mg/kg = 5 mg/L if your liquid weighs 1 kg/L
and 10 mg/L if your liquid weighs .5 kg/L

mg/kg is most often used as a drug term.
For example, a 30g Mouse is given 50 mg/kg avertin.
which is 30g * 1kg/1000g * 50 mg/1 Kg = 1.5 mg total drug.

mg/L is a dilution. so 50mg Trypan Blue in 100 mL water = 500 mg/L

you cant really convert from one to the other...
