Forum rules
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.

I like to convert from 0.10 mg/l of chlorine to parts per million(ppm). How do I go about it?

1 mg/liter is equivalent to one ppm, take a look here:

Code: Select all
     1 mg     0.001 g     1000 * 0.001g         1 g           
    ------ =  -------   = -----------------  = ---------------         
   1 litre   1000 cu cm   1000 * 1000 cu cm    1 million cu cm

 
     1 g               1 cu cm       1 part
  ---------------  X  ---------  = ------------- = 1 ppm
  1 million cu cm      1 gram      million parts


That said, 0.10 mg/l would be 0.10 ppm.
