## How to convert ppm to ppb

ppm and ppb are defined as:

1ppm = 1/10^{6} = 10^{-6}

1ppb = 1/10^{9} = 10^{-9}

So

1ppm = 1000ppb

The number of parts-per billion x_{ppb} is equal to the number of parts-per million x_{ppm} multiplied by 1000:

*x*_{ppb} = *x*_{ppm} ⋅ 1000

Example: 7ppm is equal to 7000ppb:

*x*_{ppb} = 7ppm ⋅ 1000 = 7000ppb

#### PPM to PPB

PPM stands for parts of gas per million parts of air, and PPB is parts per billion. If that's not easy to imagine, try these examples:

#### Part per million (ppm):

1 second in just under 2 weeks.

1 litre of water in a swimming pool.

#### Part per billion (ppb):

1 second in 32 years.

1 ml of water in a swimming pool (that's about the size of a sugar cube).

The number of parts-per billion x_{ppb} is equal to the number of parts-per million x_{ppm} multiplied by 1000:

x_{ppb} = x_{ppm} ⋅ 1000

#### Example:

7ppm is equal to 7000ppb:

x_{ppb} = 7ppm ⋅ 1000 = 7000ppb
