I want to measure the Bismuth molar concentration in the OTC drug "pepto bismol".
- 525 mg bismuth subsalicylate (C7H6BiO4) / 30 mL (17.5 mg/mL)
- molecular weight 363.10054 g/mol
If I convert to mM (17.5 mg/mL / 363.10054 g/mol * 1000), I get 48.2 mM. However, this value seems very high. Am I missing something obvious?
I am sorry if this question seems basic to you. I can't find the answer anywhere else though. Thank you so much in advance!
