Step 1

Given,

Haemoglobin concentration = 15.2 g/dL

That means, 15.2 g of haemoglobin is present in 1 dL of the blood.

Step 2

Conversion of 15.2 g/dL to mg/mL can be done as follows :

Conversion factors : 1 g = 1000 mg
1 dL 100 mL
=
15.2 g
15.2 X 1000 mg
152 mg
152 mg/mL
1 mL
1 dL
100 mL

Conversion factors : 1 g = 1000 mg 1 dL 100 mL = 15.2 g 15.2 X 1000 mg 152 mg 152 mg/mL 1 mL 1 dL 100 mL

Step 3

So, 152 mg of haemoglobin is present in 1 mL of blood, therefore milligrams of haem...

1 mL of blood contains
152 mg haemoglobin
152 mg haemoglobin
:. 5 mL of blood contains
x 5 mL
1 mL
= 760 mg haemoglobin
