# What is 60 milligrams in km?

I need to know this because it's part of my Physics review.

Sorry for the lighting if you consider that a problem.

There is no conversion.

Grams to meters.

Mass can not be converted to distance.

OR, did you mean kg??

60 mg = 6.0E-5 kg

60 mg = 6.0 × 10⁻⁵ kg

60 mg = .00006 kg

I figure you meant mg to kg ;in this case the answer is :

60 mg = 60*10^-6 = 6.0*10^-5 kg (0.00006 kg)

If, instead, you mean mg to km , then the question is absurd : mass and distance are different quantities !!!

Clearly a typo. they meant to type 60 milligrams in kilograms but pressed m instead of g.

And never proof read their own document.

I have had this sort of thing when sitting for exams and have to patiently explain to the lecturer THAT the question is wrong, WHY the question was wrong, WHAT the question was intended to be and SUBMIT the answer to the question the examiner wanted to ask but didn't. It takes a lot of guts and confidence to do this On the other hand a person who has not the confidence to submit the correct answer is quite useless when they leave the university.

Ok so the intended answer was 60 milligrams * 1/1000 gram/milligram * 1/1000 kilogram/gram = 6/100000 kg or 6.0 * 10 ^ -5 kg

Milligrams, grams, and kilograms are units of MASS and volume

Centimeters, meters, hectometers, and kilometers (km) are units of LENGTH.

You CANNOT convert units of mass into units of length, or units of length into units of mass.

That's easy! 60 milligrams is equal to 7 joules, which is equal to 4.5 fluid ounces, which is just a tad more than 18 seconds. And 18 seconds is 5.256 km (rounded to the nearest milli-km).

But don't go by my figures--I just figured it out in my head. Do it yourself with your own calculator!

If you meant 60 mg in kg, then

1 kg = 1000g = 1,000,000 mg

60 mg * 1 kg/1,000,000 mg = 0.00006 kg.

At least I didn't make the review, so I'm not trolling.
