10,000ppm hypochlorite
« on: March 24, 2005, 06:03:12 AM »

I have to make a solution of 10,000ppm hypochlorite, since 1ppm is like 1mg/l for a solute in water solution. Does this mean that i have to add 10,000mg hypochlorite in 1liter water? If hypochlorite is in a liquid form, should i take into account its density and from that to find the volume i add to the water to get a totol of 1 litre? Correct me if i am wrong. :-\ Thanks.

First, calculate the mass of the hypochlorite you will need in your final solution. I doubt you will have a hypochlorite as a solid, but if - just weight it and then add enough water to make 1l (it is not the same as adding 1l!). If you have concentrated hypochlorite solution - find out what volume contains requested mass of hypochlorite. You may need density for that, unless you know what is %w/w cocentration and you can weight solution instead of measuring volume.

Is  1ppm the same like 1mg/l ? Or does it depend in other factors like the density of the solute and solvent?  ::)

Well, you posted this question in at least three places, you should have enough answers at the moment ;)

1ppm is rather something like 1mg/kg - so in fact  you will need density for calculations if you have just concentration.
