This answer was rated:

If you prepare 5 ml of a 5 mcg/ml dilution from a stock drug of 50 mcg/ml; how much drug and diluent are needed?
How do you solve this to get the answer?
Welcome and thanks for your question I am Dr. German I would be here to help you and give you assistance until you are satisfied, to have the same proportion of diluent , you need to divide:


1.50 mcg/ml / 5mcg /ml = 10 ml

2.Like you already have 1 ml ( 10ml -1ml = 9ml ) , you need to add 9 ml of diluent to the 50mcg/ml of stock drug .

3. Now you have the stock drug dilution of 50 mcg/10 ml and you will take 5ml of the drug dilution.

4. In conclusion , you will need 25 mcg of drug and 5 ml of diluent .
