 milligrams:

Free online mEq to mg calculator – Convert milliequivalents (meq) to milligrams (mg), simply Enter the mEq and select substance then click the calculate button.

## mEq to mg Formula

To convert milliequivalents (mEq) to milligrams (mg), you can use the following formula:

mg = mEq * (At Wt / V)

Where,

• mg = milligrams
• mEq = milliequivalent
• At Wt = Atomic Weight or molecular weight
• V= Valance number

## How to convert mEq to mg?

To convert milliequivalents (mEq) to milligrams (mg), you need to know the Atomic weight and valence of the substance

Here’s a step-by-step guide:

• Select the substance : (eg – Mg, Zn)
• Next, look up the atomic weight of the substance (use the periodic table)
• Next, Determine the valence (ex – valence of magnesium is 2)
• Next, use the above formula

## Solved Example

Example – 2 mEq of sodium ions (Na⁺), and you want to convert it to milligrams

Solved

• milliequivalent = 2 mEq
• Atomic Weight of sodium (Na) = 22.99 g/mol
• Valence of sodium (Na) = 2

Put all values into the formula

mg = 2 * (22.99 / 1) = 2 * 22.99 = 45.98 mg

Therefore, 2 mEq of sodium ions is equivalent to 45.98 mg of sodium
