Expert preview solution
ML to be infused - 100ml
Time duration - 45min
- Ml/hr = total volume to be infused/ number of hours
- As time given in minutes it has to be converted into hours by multiplying 60/1 ( 1 hour has 60 minutes) with that formula.
- Hence (total volume/time in minutes)×(60/1)
- 6000/45 = 133ml per hour to set to infuse 100 Ml in 45 min
