Problem

An acetaminophen suspension for infants contains 80 mg/0.80 mL suspension. The recommended dose is 15 mg/ kg body weight. How many mL of this suspension should be given to an infant weighing 14 lb? (Assume two significant figures.) 

Solution

The volume of the suspension can be calculated using the concentration of the suspension given. However, we will have to convert some units in order to do the calculation

Given:


When transforming one unit to another, recall the conversion factors and/or constants that will be used in the calculation. We will use the following conversion factors:
