A pharmacist needs 14.6 g of a drug. The drug is available as a solution form in which every 100 g contains only 87 g of the pure drug. If the solution has a specific gravity of 0.85, then determine the volume of the solution that you need to compound the product. Click on the button below to see the answer and explanations

lb equals 19.74 mL kg

The quantity of pure drug = 14.6 g.

Step 1: determine the weight of the solution which will be used as the source of the drug.
100 g of the solution provides 87 g of the drug.
Therefore,

(100\quad g\quad solution)/(87\quad g\quad drug)=x/(14.6\quad g\quad drug)
Or, x = 16.782\quad g\quad  solution.

Step 2: determine the volume of the solution from its specific gravity (0.85) and weight in grams (16.782).
We know that,
SG = (Weight\quad i n\quad grams)/(volume\quad i n\quad mL)
Or, Volume\quad i n \quad mL = (Weight\quad i n \quad grams) / (SG)
Or Volume\quad i n \quad mL = 16.782/0.85 = 19.743.
