1-false the value of dose and dosage is Express the different values.

Explanation- as dose is is depends on age and weight for eg- 250 mg whereas the dosage is the frequency at which the dose is given for eg- 500mg capsule.

Explanation-there are many ways to describe the concentration

The SI unit for Mass concentration is calculated in kg/m3 ( kilogram / cubic meter) and this would be same as

Mg/ mL and g/L so concentration unit can be express in mg /mL or g/L

And the percentage solution of concentration would be calculated in % also

So all of the above units can be express in concentration

Explanation- the dose is depends on the age and weight so while calculating the dose it would be calculated in both milligram as well as kilogram.

Explanation- drugs weight that is the mass weight and it would be calculated in milligram and kilogram

(mg/kg)
