hi

could anyone tell me 10nmoles(nanomoles) is microgram ?

-rick112-

Explain ur query in brief i.e. no of base pair etc.

ok

biomath calculator from promega holds a usefool tool for your purpose.after the ##@@&& biiiiiiiiiiipTILT "choose your country page" you'll access the page. (ok i hate these redirections...)
if you want to calculate "by hand only" i attached the formulas

10nmoles of one substance is going to weigh differently than another. It's important to remember that a mole is simply 6.02 X10^23 molecules (Avogadro's number) of any substance. Much like saying a dozen, it's a fixed number. Now if you think about it... a dozen feathers is going to weigh very differently than a dozen bricks, even though you have the same number (12) of items on the scale. It's the same for molecules. You have heavy ones and light ones but when you say you have one mole of either you are saying you specifically have 6.02 X 10^23 molecules. How many moles you need to have a specific weight all depends on the molecular weight of the substance. Does this make sense?

molecular mass is

X g/mol

or

X ng/nmol

or

X x10 ng/ 10 nmol
