How many grams will a solution weigh, if it contains 0.33 g of a drug? The label claims 26.4 PPM.

lb equals 12500 g kg

    PPM is the number of grams present per 1 million (1,000,000) grams of the preparation or solution or mixture.
    26.4 PPM means, there is 26.4 g of drug present in each million (1,000,000) g of the preparation.
    Weight of drug = 0.33 g.
    Therefore, we can write:
    `(26.4 \quad g)/(1,000,000\quad g)=(0.33\quad g)/x therefore x = 12500` g. Ans.
