By the actual unit of measure.

Look at my math.

RE: I was bored. I wanted to know which was larger.
Just out of curiosity, why did you choose 0.05 mLs?

IV tubing comes in 10, 15, 20 and 60 drops per mL. I've only had to count drips once in my career - most of the time it's fudgeable when I free hang a med or bolus, but I had an anti rejection drug, a narrow time frame, and cantankerous Olaris pumps that refused to cooperate. Air in line my ass. Just found out the cleaner that our hospital uses is what has been responsible for all of our pumps malfunctioning. Angry

Specifically:

Pharmacists have since moved to metric measurements, with a drop being rounded to exactly 0.05 mL (that is, 20 drops per milliliter).

By the actual unit of measure.

Look at my math.

I was thinking the same thing as biker. You defined 50 uL as a "drop". Why? Your math says nothing on why you chose that amount. I have pipettes that can add a "drop" of something in 1 uL increments if I want to. Just curious.

edit: If your REALLY bored, figure out which has more oxygen, sand or water.

Yeah.

My calculations were FUBAR. I think I fixed them.

Pretty sure it's water. I read yesterday that 10 drops of water have more molecules than there are stars in the universe.

I think number of stars in the known universe is something mind boggling.

Yep.

Estimated number of stars in the known universe blows the drops of water out of the... water.

100 octillion

Which was a recent increase. The previous estimate was 600 sextillion.
