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.

Please help with these conversions from mM to uM to nM. Also if I have a starting concentration of 10mM and a final of 500uM am I to divide 1/2 each time?

the base of your unit is the mole. the prefixes milli (m), micro, (µ) and nano (n) all have specific dimensions which are used every time.

milli (m) is 1x10^-3
micro (µ) is 1x10^-6
nano (n) is 1x10^-9
pico (p) is 1x10^-12

using that:
10 mM is 10 x 1x10^-3 or 1x10^-2 moles

500 µM is 500 x 1x10^-6 moles, or 5x10^-4

Code: Select all
1x10^-2
------- = 20
5x10^-4
