I am guessing you want to figure the flow rate in number of drops/mL required to empty 1 L in 6 hrs

So the flow rate is 1 Liter per 6 Hours, to start with

\[\frac{ 1 ~~L }{6~~hrs }\]

  • DanJS
need to use the given info, to convert the units to what you need gtt/min
DanJS
  • DanJS
\[\frac{ 1 ~~L }{6~~hrs } * \frac{ 1~hrs }{ 60~\min }*\frac{ 1000~ mL }{ 1~ L } * \frac{ 25~gtt }{ 1~mL } = \]

just arranged it so units cancel correctly, left with gtt/min

25/1000

  • DanJS
625/9 GTT/MIN
DanJS
  • DanJS
(1000 * 25) / (6*60)

so the answer is 625/9?
