• 15*10^3= 15000mg

(multiply the mass value by 1000 because there are 1000 mg in a gram)

For future reference, Google will tell you. Type in "15 grams to milligrams"

It's 15000mg

The conversion factor for milligrams is 1000mg/1g (one thousand milligrams per one gram)

So 15g x (1000mg/1g) = 15000mg (grams cancel out leaving you with mg)
