Convert Parts per Million to Micrograms per Liter How do I convert from parts per million to micrograms per liter? Answer: You need some additional information about the substances you are trying to convert. In the future, we hope to provide a calculator for this that will make the calculation easy! Explanation: You need some additional information that is beyond the scope of our measurement conversion calculator. First you need to know the molar volume of both of the substances (that would be their volume per mol in cubic meters per mol or compatible units), and you need to know the molar mass of the first substance (that would be its mass per mol in kilograms per mol or compatible units). So, for example, if you are measuring parts per million of DDT in water, then you need the molar volume of DDT, the molar volume of water, and the molar mass of DDT. Assume the molar volume of DDT is 1.5 liters per mol, and the molar volume of water is 1.2 liters per mol, and the molar mass of DDT is 1.8 kilograms per mol (these are ©2000 ConvertIt.com, Inc.
