Dear convert-me.com 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 convert-me.com FaceBook page

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

How do I convert u(micro)mol/L to mcg.dL?

As in Australian ref ranges for DHEAs

You have to know the molar mass of the substance in question, grams/mole. If you know the chemical formula, you can add up the atomic weights of the constituent elements (and quantities). Then convert the grams to moles. I assume the conversion between liters and deciliters is no problem.

Thanks. Unfortunately my chemistry is greatly lacking. A have been told that the molecular weight of DHEAs is 384. Is this the molar mass? HOw do you convert to grams?

Yes, the molar mass in grams is numerically equal to the molecular weight in atomic mass units (which have a new "official" name but are unchanged). So 384 g/mol in this case.

If you have the formula and a periodic table, you add up the amu's of all the atoms in the molecule.
