How to convert ppm to mg/m3

According to BIPM(Bureau International des Poids et Mesures) “ppm” is “The term "ppm", meaning 10–6 relative value, or 1 in 106, or parts per million, is also used. This is analogous to the meaning of percent as parts per hundred” According to Wikipedia “ppm” is “"Parts-per" notation is used, especially in science and engineering, to denote relative proportions in measured quantities; particularly in low-value (high-ratio) proportions at the parts-permillion (ppm), parts-per-billion (ppb ), and parts-pertrillion (ppt) level.” I think one example will be more clear. These days when everyone talks for ecology we in EU know that there is a limits of the sulfur contains in the liquid fuels. In the EU since 2007 the contain of sulfur shall not exceed 50 ppm(Euro IV). And from 2009 it must be 10 ppm. 1/13

This mean mass in volume which is also strange because we talk about gases and their masses differ and depends from temperatures and pressure. This shows us that the ppm measurement is not so correct in when we talk about stuffs with different states – liquid and crystal. So it is impossible to be liquid in the diesel.4/15/13 Chemical engineer: How to convert ppm to mg/m3 What this digits mean actually – if you burn one litter of diesel then you will burn and 50 ppm of sulfur or 50 parts from all million.03 kg/cm2 T – measured temperature P – measured pressure Then in 25 Celsius degrees and 1 atm. Many of the limits are given in these measurement units and if you saw the limits in EU. Then if we have 35 ppm this means that in one cubic meter there is 35 cubic centimeters of sulfur dioxide – 35 cm3/m3. the equitation will be mjekov74. Let see how the ppm is used in gases from chimneys and how it is used. UK or even Bulgaria every limits are in mg/m3. Years ago when I have started to learn about measuring of pollutions in chimney gases everything was in mg/m3 or milligrams per cubic meter. Now we must find how the weight of these 35 cm3 is.21 degrees.html 2/13 . For example in UK the limits of NOx in chimney gases on appliances which are new and work with liquid fuels is 450 mg/m3. And we have 25 degrees and 1 atm. This means that you will burn 50 milliliters of sulfur! Of course the sulfur is not liquid – the stuff sulfur is a yellow crystal and it melt on 115. From equation of Klapeyron ρ = (M/22. Where: M – molecular mass of the stuff To – normal temperature – 273K Po – normal pressure So how we should work to transfer ppm to mg/m3 at first let look for example when we have concentration of 35 ppm SO2.blogspot.4)*(ToP/PoT) – this give us a density of the gases in different temperature and pressure. pressure. This mean that in one cubic meter we have 1 000 000 cubic centimeters.

000035 m3/m3 2.html 3/13 .. Now we could find how is the mass of sulfur dioxide in this 35 cm3: 1.617 kg/m3 So we have found the density of the 35 cubic centimeters of sulfur dioxide and it is mg/m3 sulfur dioxide There is a simple way to calculate this here is the formula: Xppm=(Ymg/m3*24.000035 m3/m3= 91. pollution 12 comments: Michael said.html 14 August 2008 15:38 mjekov said.617 kg/m3 = 2 617 000 mg/m3 3.2.617 kg/m3. mjekov74.03/1.Then 2 617 000 mg/m3 * 0..85*0. environmental.

Thanks michael but mainly reason of mine post is to understand how to convert this and what is the mechanism of conversion.35 cm3/m3 can be present as 35 x 10-6 m3/m3 = 0. And if you are so lazy try online converter here.gasdetection.4)*(273*1.

witch density I should take as a parameter? 1kg/l or other? Sorry for my 1 page questions. For example if you burn 1 000 kg per hour this will gave you 13 000 cubic meters chimney gases(this is a approximately and is given in CORINAIR).blogspot. so could you help me with debts in converting emissions. and for water emissions in the formula.. but I need only the average monthly bases of concentrations ( It's a herbal tea industry. I have finished Industrial Engineering and Management so I have forget chemistry staff even if was my best side in gymnasium. thank you in advance. Hi Natalija. and dust 0. Hi. So I found your side and saw that you are so good in your profession as chemical engineer. CO=116 mg/m3.html 4/13 .4/15/13 Chemical engineer: How to convert ppm to mg/m3 14 August 2008 21:06 Natalija said.569. I will have the kg of SO2 in the moment.. Could you tell me how much jelly you burn at year? If you know the amount of jelly the answer is near to you. It's about SO2 and CO emissions from steam petroleum jelly (мазут) boiler (we steal use it for heating:))and Cu and O2.. please? I have information from a company for their air and water releases in mg/m3 and mg/l and I need them in kg/kg Gross Product. Let give the X just for the mjekov74. 1000 -> 13 000 Then you will receive from formula 13 000 m3 with concentration of SO2 = X. I am student in Faculty of Mechanical Engineering Skopje on Environmental Management with master work "Decision making for Life cycle assessment and risk assessment in industrial process". Natalija 15 May 2009 21:06 mjekov said.45)/(molecular weight) for the air emissions.96mg/m3). From the formula that you have posted on the blog "Chemical Engineer" Xppm=(Ymg/m3*24. (won't I?)and I need kg of SO2 and CO per year or er product.

For CO I am not completely sure what you mean.. if you burn one litter of diesel then you will burn and 50 ppm of sulfur or 50 parts from all million.blogspot. Your solution for converting ppm to mg/m3 at elevated temperature and pressure seems valid. Do you mean CO2? At the end water emissions. Do u mind to share with me about your reference regarding the equation? 30 November 2009 21:36 mjekov 1 December 2009 04:19 #naymin said. This means that you will burn 50 milliliters of sulfur! mjekov74. Do you ask me about the emissions which are IN the water or this ones who are in the water vapour? In the first situation when the emissions are in the water then the density of 1kg/l is good choose but you should check the temperature of the water. I am a student of Chemical Engineering. Then we will have 13 000 m3 x 1000 mg/m3 = 13 000 000 mg SO2 or 13 kg of SO2 per hour.html 5/13 ... Sorry najla. hi. I hope this is answer to your question about SO2.. So now you should put your concentration at the place of mine X or 1000.. 16 May 2009 07:07 najla said. Sometimes cooling water come out with 30 degrees and then the density Currently I am little busy right now if you wish contact with me on mjekov74{at}gmail. In the situation when the SO2 is in the vapour then the things going totally different.. Please if you have other questions about this do not hesitate to ask me on my e-mail. But I am not sure about the equation of Klapeyron.4/15/13 Chemical engineer: How to convert ppm to mg/m3 example 1000 mg/m3 concentration..

Full of information... This means that you will burn 50 milliliters of sulfur! I think 50 micro liter that should not be milliliter.for the volatile matters generated by the mixture.
