Total tried:       Correct:       Wrong:

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.

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`.
    Answer.
