QUESTION

# Convert 73.2 ppm to weight percent So what exactly is ppm and weight percent gland how would we approach and solve this problem?

Ppm stands for "parts per million".

In other words, "How many grams are in one million grams of the sample?"

In the same way, mass percent is the number of grams in 100 g of the sample.

For example, "73.2 ppm" = "73.2 g"/(10^6 "g") of sample.

We want to know the mass of the component in 100color(white)(l) "g", so we divide both numerator and denominator by 10^4.

"% by mass" = ("73.2 g" -: 10^4)/(10^6 "g" -: 10^4) = "0.007 32 g"/(100color(white)(l) "g") = "0.007 32 %" (m/m)
