Potassium has a gram Atomic Mass of 39.1, to three significant digits (one more significant digit than "20 meq" has). Therefore, one meq = 39.1 mg, and 20 meq = 20(39.1) = 7.8 X 102 mg, to the justified number of significant digits.
20 meq of potassium is equal to 1.5 gms of potassium chloride.
ANSWER: 1500 mg.
No. You'd need about 4 tablets of 99 mg KCl to equal 10 mEq of prescription-strength KCl, 8 tablets to equal 20 mEq.
how many mg in 20 meg potassium
i believe 10 meqs of potassium is equal to 390 mg's of potassium, therefore, one meq, is equal to 39 mg's potassiumNot sure where you get your answer but according to drugs.com 10meg is equal to 750 mg of potassium20mEq of potassium chloride is 781.960 mg of elemental potassium [K], and 709.060 mg of elemental chlorine [Cl] (which is 1491.0 mg of potassium chloride [KCl]). Here's how to figure it:_________________mg = (mEq • atomic, molecular or formula weight) / valenceAtomic weight of potassium [K] is 39.0983Atomic weight of chlorine [Cl] is 35.453The molecular weight of potassium chloride [KCl] is sum of the atomic weights above: 74.551 (rounded)The valence of potassium chloride is 1Thus:(20mEq potassium chloride • 74.551) / 1 = 1491.0 mg potassium chlorideWhich breaks down to 781.960 mg of elemental potassium [K], and 709.060 mg of elemental chlorine [Cl]._________________
There are 20 neutrons in a potassium-40 atom
MEG on a script means milliequivalent & doesn't really tell you the measurement, it must be for potassium; it's very thought provoking I too have been trying to figure this out. you just want to know the mg huh? Evie mEq is used to denote an amount of a solute in a liter of solvent (i.e. the blood).For instance, potassium (K) is often measured as mEq/L or mEq/dL. 10 mEq is equivalent to 750 mg, USP. -See related link: DailyMed.After some research using various websites, the typical K intake per day is ~ 3.5 grams (3500 mg.). At the same time the usual K intake is stated elsewhere as 50-100 mEq/day. So, 1 mEq is somewhere in the range [70 mg, 35 mg.] (i.e., 3500/50 to 3500/100). Using the mid-point of the 50-100 mEq range (75), we get: 1 mEq ~ 46.7 mg -or-10mEq ~ 467 mg.A harder question is: If you start taking an additional 20 mEq of K today, how long does it take to show up in a blood test ?
It has 20 neutrons.
Umm...20 dimes equal 20. Now, if you mean, "How many dimes equal 20 cents, 2; 20 dollars, 200.
mEq. or milliequivalents is one thousandth of a chemical equivalent. It is calculated by multiplying the milligrams per liter by the valence of the chemical and dividing by the molecular weight of the substance.
