ppm to mg/m3 Conversion Calculator

  Input values below. (Disclaimer)
Enter either ppm or mg/m3 and the molecular weight then click the "Calculate" button
ppm:
mg/m3:
molecular weight:
Enter the molecular weight of the substance in the box above or select from the list below
Format: Chemical Name (CAS Registry Number)

Results

ppm value:
mg/m3 value:
Based on molecular weight of: :

How it works

ppm = (mg/m3 value )(24.45)/(molecular weight)


mg/m3 = ( ppm value)(molecular weight)/24.45


24.45 is a conversion factor that represents the volume of one mole of gas.

To determine the molecular weight of a particular substance, add the atomic weights (look at the MSDS of the particular substance) of each atom present in the chemical formula of that particular substance

Note: this calculation assumes a temperature of 25°C (77°F) and a pressure of 1 atmosphere (760 torr or 760 mm Hg).
