Our online Percent to PPM Converter is used to convert the percentage value into the ppm (parts-per-million).
What is PPM (Part Per Million)
PPM, or parts-per-million, is a way of expressing very dilute concentrations of substances. Usually describes the concentration of something in water or soil. One ppm is equivalent to 1 milligram of something per liter of water (mg/l) or 1 milligram of something per kilogram soil (mg/kg).
How to convert percent to ppm
1% = 10000ppm
x(ppm) = 10000 . x(%)
Example: find how many ppm are in 1.7%.
x(ppm) = 10000 . 1.9% = 19000ppm
