To start off, mg=milligrams and mcg=micrograms.
milli- can be replaced with 10-3 while micro- can be replaced with 10-6
0.05mg can be rewritten as 0.05*10-3g
To get the value in mcg (10-6), you need to multiply by 103 and by 10-3 like this:
[0.05 * (103)] * [10-3 * (10-3)] g = 50 * 10-6 g = 50mcg
So yes, 0.05 mg is equal to 50mcg.
Is 50mcg the same as 5mg?
*1000 mcg = 1 mg* .125mg = 50mcg (x) .125mg x (1000mcg / 1mg) = 50mcg (x) 125mcg = 50mcg (x) x = 2.5 So 2.5 (50mcg) pills equal 0.125mg
*1000mcg = 1mg* 125mg = 50mcg(x) 125mg x (1000mcg/1mg) = 50mcg(x) 125mcg= 50mcg(x) x = 2.5
0.05mg equates to 50mcg
1mg = 1000mcg 50mcg x 1mg/1000mcg = 0.05mg 50mcg is half of 0.1mg
A 50mcg (patch dosages are in Micrograms, not Milligrams) fentanyl patch is equivalent to approximately 200 mg/day of oral morphine.
0.05mg is equal to 50mcg
No. 50mcg is the same as 0.05mg
which is the higher dose....125mg or 50mcg
50mcg equates to 0.05mg (1000mcg per mg).
