## anonymous one year ago Medal A physician orders 0.3 mg epinephrine.The available solution contains 0.5 mg/mL. Interpret the order and determine both what size syringe to use and the amount of epinephrine solution to be administered

Mass$M$ is given 0.3mg Density $\rho$ is given 0.5mg/mL Use the relation $\rho=\frac{M}{V}$ $V=\frac{M}{\rho}$ You will get your answer in mL

v= 0.3/ 0.5

The size of the syringe should be such that it can hold the volume of solution, that is volume of the syringe should be at least equal to the volume of the liquid. Now a syringe is typically a cylinder, so unless they give u radius of syringe or it's height we can't really about it's size, but the volume of the syringe should be at least equal to the volume of the liquid
