Default micrograms/gram to ppm

Please help!

Is this just basic "moving the decimal place" math? I need a vote of confidence (or someone to say NO!!)

are micrograms/gram the same as PPM,
since PPM=mg/kg : 10 to the 6thpower?

Thanks for your help and making this terrific website available. We use it quite frequently.

1 microgram = 0.000001 gram
1 gram = 1 gram

1 microgram/gram = 0.000001/1 = 1/1000000 = 1 PPM

So yes, microgram/gram is the same as PPM.

How would you convert ppm to micrograms/dL

If I have 0.013 ppm lead level (RBC) what would it be in micrograms/dL?

1 ppm = 100 micrograms/deciliter

0.013 * 100 = 1.3 g/dL

1 kg = 1000 g
1 g = 1 000 000 g
so 1 kg = 10^9 g
