Dear convert-me.com forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on convert-me.com FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

conversion of micrograms per liter

Hello,

I am asking again:

1. How do I convert micrograms per liter (ug/L) to milligrams per cubic meter (mg/cm3)

2. micrograms per liter (ug/L) to milligrams per square meter (mg/cm2)

Many thanks for help in advance.

1) Multiply by 1. There are 1000 µg per mg, and 1000 L per m³. The two factors of 1000 cancel each other.

2) You can't. They are not compatible units. You would have to spread the liter over some number of square meters and determine the thickness, so it still added up to a liter.
