You're already there.

1 mg = 0.001 grams
1 kg = 1,000 grams

0.001 / 1,000 = 1/1,000,000 = one part per million

All you need to do to convert is take "mg/kg" off the end, and stick "ppm" on.

You don't. mg/L is the same as ppm.

1 mg = 0.001 g
1 l = 1,000 ml.


Remember that 1 ml = 1 g of water, so 1 liter = 1,000 grams (of Water).

Again:

0.001 / 1,000 = 1/1,000,000 = one part per million .

ppm is mg/g so your mg/kg is really part per trillion which = 100ppm


and mg/kg to a % --> 1 mg = 1e-6 kg so if you had 1mg and 1kg your percent would be 1e-6% or 0.000001%

Ooops: heres the real answer

1 mg = 0.001 grams
1 kg = 1,000 grams

0.001 / 1,000 = 1/1,000,000 = one part per million

All you need to do to convert is take "mg/kg" off the end, and stick "ppm" on.

mg/L to ppm is dependent on the specific gravity of the fluid. The conversion is = when you are dealing with water, however, for salt solutions you must divide mg/L by the specific gravity to determine parts per million.

mg/kg to ppm

Postby Adam » Thu Oct 13, 2005 12:51 am

you've got the answer already...mg/kg is ppm.

so 10 mg/ kg is 50 ppm. Same goes for mg/L.

10 mg/L is 10 ppm.

hope this helps.

how do you convert mass/mass to volume/volume?
does 1 mg/kg = 1 ppm NOT ALWAYS!!!!
If you have 100 boxes of equal volume then 1 box = 1pph (part per hundred)
If the overall mass of those hundred boxes is 100kg then 1 box or 1pph will have a mass of 1kg
Now, what if 99 boxes are full of feathers and 1 box is full of lead. If the mass of the 100 boxes is still 100kg then no matter which box you choose it will NOT have a mass of 1kg.
Therefore for heterogeneous mixtures, 1ppm does not = 1mg/kg

The 1 ppm = 1mg/kg is simply a concentration measurement. This is done after the volume has been converted to mass. Sure you could have 99 boxes of feathers and one box of lead, that concentration of lead would be higher than 1 pph, because the mass of feathers would be low.
As for heterogeneous mixtures go, concentration does not apply.

50g/100mL = 500,000 ppm

500g/1L = 500,000 ppm

50 mg/200mL = 2.5 ppm

8,000,000ug/1 mL = 8,000,000 ppm

firstly if you look, 5211 is in milligrams. To convert milligrams into grams you divide by 1000. So 5211 divided by a 1000 is 5.211 grams. Now grams into to kg, is divide by a 1000. So 5.211grams divided by a 1000 equals 0.005211kg.

Simply divide by 1000

Remember, mg/kg is the same as parts per 1,000,000
and, % is the same as parts per 100
So, if you divide 1,000,000 by 100 you will get 10,000

Guys.... I understand the concept that mg/L is same as ppm but using calc with 10^6 is best way....

However... if you really need to convert something and you get this question like "Determine the ppm of 7.5mg of KCl in 850mL H20"

Simple...

first... convert 850mL to Liter... which would be .85L (850mL divide by 1000mL and you will get .85L)

Next....

You know mg/L is ppm, too. All you have to do is... 7.5mg divide by .85L and it would be 7.5mg/.85L and you get 8.82 mg/L ...

Here's how it work... just remove mg/L to ppm and you will get 8.82ppm... mg/L and ppm is just same but different unit but still same concept!

Hope it clears up

Nick

I don't know if you got an answer to your request or not but the answer is:

simply multiply mg/m3 x MW/24.04 (the volume occupied by one mole at 20C)

For example to convert 10 mg/m3 of HCN to ppm:
MW of HCN = 27 g/mol divided by 24.04 = 1.123 x 10 mg/m3 = 11.23 ppm

Divide by 1,000,000 (1 million)

1 Kg=1000g
1g=1000mg
therefore 1000 X 1000= 1,000,000
so 10 mg= .00001 Kg
