Converting Micrograms to MilligramsDate: 08/10/99 at 21:03:04 From: jonni jones Subject: Metric Conversion I am trying to convert micrograms to milligrams. I think there are 1000 mcg in 1 mg, but I am unable to confirm this. Date: 08/11/99 at 08:23:41 From: Doctor Jerry Subject: Re: Metric Conversion One microgram is 10^{-6} grams. One milligram is 10^{-3} grams. So, 1 microgram = 10^{-3}*(10^{-3} grams) = 10^{-3} milligrams. So, 1000 micrograms is 1 milligram, as you said. - Doctor Jerry, The Math Forum http://mathforum.org/dr.math/ |
