Forum rules
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.

It depends on the density of what's being converted.

Although the above is true, with medications, especially those in liquid form, the weight of medication per volume is usually noted, e.g., 5 mg per 5 ml.

This information should be on the container label. If not, look on the informational sheet supplied with the medication, if one was provided.

If you need more help after you find the medication weight to volume, re-post and someone here will help you.
