Quarts to Milligrams Conversion Calculator
Enter the volume in quarts below to calculate the weight in milligrams.
How to Convert Quarts to Milligrams
To convert a quart measurement to a milligram measurement, multiply the volume by 946,352.946 times the density of the ingredient or material.
You can use this simple formula to convert:
Thus, the volume in milligrams is equal to the quarts multiplied by 946,352.946 times the density of the ingredient or material.
Quarts 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. 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.

The US liquid quart is a unit of fluid volume equal to one fourth of a gallon, two pints, or four cups. The liquid quart should not be confused with the dry quart (US) or the imperial quart, which are different units.
The quart is a US customary unit of volume. Quarts can be abbreviated as qt; for example, 1 quart can be written as 1 qt.
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.
