2.3ppm means in 1kg of sample, you would have 2.3mg of whatever you are testing for.

Is this what you wanted to know?

Or do you want to know how much original material you need in order to get 0.2 grams of your compund of interest?

Wrong. It depends on the density of each substance.

Debatable. It depends on what "flavor" of ppm.

Ppm is an ambiguous term because it can be calculated on a mass, volume, or mole-fraction ratio.

Assuming mass/mass is meant, the above interpretation is correct.

Actually ppm on v/v basis is not too common, It is usually mass/mass for solids and mole/mole for gases. Liquids may be mass over mass, or mass over a volume of one liter assumed to be a kilogram.

Hallo every one
1 ppm =1 mg/kg and this equation for the solid materials .
for example
100 ppm lactic acid it means 100 mg /kg or 100 gram/1000 kg

I assume the final solution you tested is dilute enough that it doesn't matter whether your ppm is w/w or w/v, you have 2.83 g/100 mL.

Because of the intermediate dilution only part of your initial 2 g sample contributed to the 100 mL of solution, specifically 2 g x 0.25 mL/50 mL, or 10 mg. Therefore the concentration in your sample was 2.83 g/10 mg, or 0.283 mg/g.

220 mg/1000 mL x 100 mL/5 g=4.4 mg/g = 4400 mg/kg
