    Converting % solute concentration to mg/l; liquids

    Hi,

    I'm new and need help with a formula to convert 0.002% hydrogen peroxide/volume (968 fl oz) to mg/L.

    Thanks

    Step 1: 0.002% = 0.00002
    Step 2: 0.00002*968 fl oz = 0.01936 fl oz
    Step 3: 0.01936 fl oz H_{2}O_{2} = ?? mg H_{2}O_{2}
    Step 4: 1 fl oz = ?? L

    Fill in the balanks. Then what?

    Thanks TK

    Step 3: 0.01936 fl oz = 580.8 mg
    Step 4: 1 fl oz = 0.03 L

    Goal: to supplement dissolved oxygen with H2O2 in transport water for aquarium fish transport and not cook gills, corneas and mucus membrane in the process.

    I really appreciate your time and help.

    Correction

    I believe that should be: 5,808.0 mg /L for the 0.002% solution... not 580.8 mg/L.
