    My brain has completely froze. I can't even figure out how I got my initial figures for Exercise One [​IMG]. I will get a good nights rest and try again in the morning. I know I can figure this out. I think I'm over complicating it.

    It would be good if others give this a try so they know how when the need arises and can't get quick enough answers from the forum.

    Ok, I edited and corrected post # 14 and post # 17. If you would be so kind to check it over and let me know if I'm wrong. I think I got it right now.

    Now to work on Exercise #4 and #5. Been a soggy day today so my computer has been off because of thunderstorms.

    Do you mean mixing a solution (Exercise number one) using the measurement in Liters instead of Gallons?

    It seemed too easy I had to check it several different ways and still came up with the same answer. Here's one method:

    1 gallon = 3.785 L (listed on the package of amprolium)
    50 gallons = 189.27 L
    1 Liter = .26 gal
    1 ounce = 29.5735 ml

    16 oz = 473.176 ml
    8 oz = 236.588 ml
    4 oz = 118.294 ml

    0.024%: 473.176ml divided by 189.27 L = 2.5ml/L
    0.012%: 236.588ml divided by 189.27 L = 1.250ml/L (or 2.5 divided by 2)
    0.006%: 118.294ml divided by 189.27 L = .625ml/L (or 2.5 divided by 4)

    These are in US measurements. UK measurements will be slightly different.

    Knowing how to make Corid water with the 9.6% solution can help with make many other medications, which I will point out as we go along.

    1 oz = 29.5735ml = 29.5735g
    50 gal = 189.27L

    Converting ounces to milliliters to grams

    0.024%: 16oz = 473.176g divided by 189.27L= 2.50g/L
    0.012%: 8oz = 236.588g divided by 189.27L = 1.25g/L
    0.006%: 4oz = 118.294g divided by 189.27L = .625g/L

    Return grams to milligrams by multiplying by 1000 (seen in formulas below).
    Now find out how many milligrams of amprolium at 9.6% are there in one Liter

    0.024%: 2500mg x 0.096 = 240mg amprolium per liter
    0.012%: 1250mg x 0.096 = 120mg amprolium per liter
    0.006%: 625mg x 0.096 = 60mg amprolium per liter

    This should take care of the changes. Should be correct now.

    Some of those numbers look a little off to me...
