microgram/L to microgram/gm conversion

hi friends,
I have extracted 1gm of soil with 25 ml of water and then analysed this water, the result was 5 microgram/L (ppb)... can u help me in calculating the conc. in 1 gm of soil (ic conc. in origenal sample either in ppm or in ppb) !!!

Hi,

In solutions, ppb is micrograms per litre.
In solids, ppb is micrograms per kilogram.
There are 1000mL in 1L

5µg x 25/1000 = 0.125µg.

Your original sample has 0.125µg in 1g

Would you like to have a go at working out the last step yourself? - It sounds as though you need to be able to do this if you are involved in soil/water chemistry.

You are most welcome to post back here if you want your answers checked, or you need more help.
