How to Convert Pints to Milligrams

To convert a pint measurement to a milligram measurement, multiply the volume by 473,176.473 times the density of the ingredient or material.

You can use this simple formula to convert:

milligrams = pints × 473,176.473 × ingredient density

Thus, the volume in milligrams is equal to the pints multiplied by 473,176.473 times the density of the ingredient or material.

For example, here's how to convert 5 pints to milligrams for an ingredient with a density of 0.7 g/mL.
5 pt = 5 × 473,176.473 × 0.7 = 1,656,117.6555 mg

Pints and milligrams are both commonly used to measure cooking ingredients.

For cooking applications, most chefs suggest measuring dry ingredients by weight rather than volume to improve accuracy in the measurements.[1] The density of dry ingredients can vary for a variety of reasons, such as compaction.

The best way to ensure an accurate conversion is to use a scale. When a scale is not available, a calculator like the one above is a good way to estimate the volume to weight conversion.

Pints

The US liquid pint is a unit of fluid volume equal to one-eighth of a gallon, one-half of a quart, or two cups. The liquid pint should not be confused with the dry pint (US) or the imperial pint, which are different units.

The pint is a US customary unit of volume. Pints can be abbreviated as pt; for example, 1 pint can be written as 1 pt.

Milligrams

The milligram is the mass equal to 1/1,000 of a gram, or 0.0154 grains.

The milligram, or milligramme, is an SI unit of weight in the metric system. In the metric system, "milli" is the prefix for 10-3. Milligrams can be abbreviated as mg; for example, 1 milligram can be written as 1 mg.
