# ppm vs percent units conversion

**Amount:** 1 part per million (ppm) of ppm-number

**Equals:** 0.00010 percent (% - pct) in percentage-ratio

Converting **part per million** to **percent** value in the ppm vs percent units scale.

TOGGLE : from percent into parts per million in the other way around.

CONVERT : between other ppm vs percent measuring units - complete list.

How many percent are in 1 part per million? The answer is: 1 ppm equals 0.00010 % - pct

## 0.00010 % - pct is converted to 1 of what?

The percent unit number 0.00010 % - pct converts to 1 ppm, one part per million. **It is the EQUAL ppm-number value of 1 part per million but in the percent percentage-ratio unit alternative.**

*percent (% - pct)*## Parts per million versus percentage

A smart way to work out a ppm value in a given amount is to apply certain percentage ratio. Meaning to use fractions of 100 to bring out the correct ppm value.

100 percent = 1,000,000 ppm

1% equals to one hundredth (1/100th of ppm)

1 ppm is one millionth (1/1,000,000th of pct)

1% comes to 10,000 ppm

1 ppm makes it 0.0001%

## ppm of a volume amount

Let's say we have some volume of a liquid, and the quantity reads there is 1-1/2 fl oz or 1.5 liter quantity. And from this volume we want to work out exactly 2,000 ppm number. With using the percentage approach it can be done quite fast and easy.

Divide the 2000 ppm by the 10,000 factor to come out with the needed % number first (or use the ppm vs. pct converter above). Like so:

2000 ppm / 10000 = 0.2%

Now finally calculate your ppm number. Use the 0.2% value of that total liquid (1.5).

1.5 / 100 * 0.2 = 0.003

2,000 ppm from the 1-1/2 fl oz, or 1.5 liter, makes it 0.003 volume (in fl oz, or L unit as well). For weight/mass instance, **X parts per million** from a given **X mass amount** can be calculated in the same way. Next you can calculate percentage of CO_{2} at ppm level, particle concentrations pct, and alike tasks.

# Converter type: ppm vs percent units

First unit: part per million (ppm) is used for measuring ppm-number.

Second: percent (% - pct) is unit of percentage-ratio.

**QUESTION**:

15 ppm = ? % - pct

**ANSWER**:

15 ppm = 0.0015 % - pct

Abbreviation, or prefix, for part per million is:

**ppm**

Abbreviation for percent is:

**% - pct**

With the above mentioned two-units calculating service it provides, this ppm vs percent converter proved to be useful also as a teaching tool:

1. in practicing parts per million and percent ( ppm vs. % - pct ) measures exchange.

2. for conversion factors between unit pairs.

3. work with ppm vs percent's values and properties.
