## mg to mEq formula

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

mEq = (mg * V) / At Wt

Where,

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

## How to convert mg to mEq?

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

Here’s a step-by-step guide:

• Select the substance : (eg – Na)
• Determine the mg
• 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 – 100mg of sodium (Na). Sodium has a valence of 1 and an atomic weight of 23. To convert it to mEq (milliequivalent).

solved –

• milligrams = 100 mg
• atomic weight of sodium = 22.99 g/mol
• Number of valence = 1

Put all values into the formula

mEq = (100mg * 1) / 22.99 = 4.3497 mEq
mEq ≈ 4.3497 mEq

100mg of sodium is equivalent to approximately 4.3497 mEq.
