Determinne the amount of Dextrose and NaCl in 500ml of 5% DNS. (The solution is 5% in regards to dextrose and 0.9% in regards to NACl.)
This is where those crazy solution concentrations in medicine come in, you just can not say percent, you have to state the basis. Commonly, (in idiot medical terms), these are w/v. So I assume you are using w/v
.05 w/v or with 500ml, then you have 25g sugar, and 4.5g salt
I have never understood why w/v is used, I guess since it eliminates density, it is easier, afterall, who wants to worry with density?
