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.
