# How do you convert to mEq L?

## How do you convert to mEq L?

The equation to get mEq is therefore [(30 mg)(2)]/(58.44 mg/mmol) = 1.027 mEq. Since there are 400 mL = 0.4 L, the concentration in mEq/L is therefore 1.027/0.4 = 2.567 mEq/L.

## Is mg/l equal to PPM?

No, mg/L is not always equivalent to ppm. Whereas ppm is a volume-to-volume or mass-to-mass ratio, mg/l is a mass-to-volume relationship.

What is a Milliequivalent equal to?

A milliequivalent is equal to the number of univalent counter ions (H+ or OH) which will be needed to react with one molecule of the substance. When an atom has a valence of one ( e.g. Na+, K+, CI, etc.) a mEq of that ion is equal to the atomic weight of the atom in milligrams.

How many mg is 8 mEq?

8 mEq (600 mg) and 10 mEq (750 mg)

### Is mg/m3 Same as ppm?

mg/m3↔ppm 1 ppm = 1000 mg/m3.

### How can you convert mEq to MG?

From the above equation, and with the valence of elemental potassium being 1, you have mEq = [ (58.65 mg) (1)]/39.1 mg/mmol = 1.5 mEq. A solution contains 30 mg of NaCl (table salt) per 400 mL of solution. Express the solution in terms of milliequivalents per liter (mEq/L). (Note: the molecular weight of NaCl is 58.44 g/mol.)

How many MG is equal to 1 mEq?

mEq. Milligrams. Formula: mg= mEq*atomic weight / valence. Minerals. Atomic Weight. Valence. Calcium. 40. 2.

What is the difference between MG and Meq?

Both milligrams and micrograms use grams as the basis of measurement and belong to the metric system.

• Both milligrams and micrograms are standard units of measurement for smaller quantities. They are often used in measuring drug dosages as well as samples in scientific experiments.
• A microgram is smaller than a milligram.
• ## How do you convert mg potassium to mEq?

– Take 10 mEq potassium citrate orally three times a day. – Severe hypocitraturia (Urinary citrate less than 150 mg/day): – Take 30 mEq potassium citrate orally 2 times a day or 20 mEq 3 times a day; with meals or within 30 minutes after meals. – Maintenance:
