hey guys there is no way the answer can be 4ml. considering the conversion factor, each gram consists of 1000mg therefore 0.5g gives you 500mg which looking at the question can be made up by giving 2tsp.

I can't see how someone would get 4ml.

that's the same exact way I worked out the problem and got 10ml as my answer but was checking my answer in the back of my book they came up with 4ml...i have no idea how they got that.
