I have to make a solution of 10,000ppm hypochlorite, since 1ppm is like 1mg/l for a solute in water solution. Does this mean that i have to add 10,000mg hypochlorite in 1liter water? If hypochlorite is in a liquid form, should i take into account its density and from that to find the volume i add to the water to get a totol of 1 litre?

Besides; Is  1ppm the same like 1mg/l ? Or does it depend in other factors like the density of the solute and solvent?

Thanks for any inputs.

Yes: 1 ppm is like 1 part for milion = 1 / EXP6 = 1mg/l = 1microgram/ml = ...

You have to bring 10,000mg hypochlorite to 1 liter with water. Of course you have to take into account the density.

If you let me know which hypochlorite you are using, I can calculate it for you

Thank you very much, chantel.

The one i use is Sodium hypochlorite (NaOCl), with a stock concentration of 12% . Will you please show me how to calculate 10,000ppm hypochlorite from a 12% stock?

THanks again.

hi
12% solution means 120g/l
so l quess that you should mix 83ml of your stock solution with 917ml H2O

Thanks, fred, but will you please show me how you think that way, because i need to know how to do it for future work.

Thanks alot.

well
12%
that says, as diluent is generally H2O, that you have in mass 12% of water mass
As 1liter weight 1000g, 12%solution is 12% of 1000.
So it's 120g.
You have then 120g of hypochlorite per liter.

after it's an ordinary way to dilute.

it's not that difficult...
you need 10 000 mg in one liter and
you have 120 g per liter, which is like 120 000 mg/l

so  10 000 divided by 120 000 is 0.08333 liter which is like 83.3 ml
and now complete your volume with water up to 1000 ml (916.7)

What if i use this formula:

as ppm = parts per million
and % = parts per one hundred

then 10,000 / 1,000,000 = 1/100 = 1%

It means that i only need 1% as my final concentration from my 12% stock. Is this correct?

Hi Seasons:

Simmonsays and Fred 33 are correct.
I do not think your last formula is correct.
I will try to explain in a simpler way the calculation.

You should not be confused by 10,000 ppm, this is just like 10g/l = 1%.
Your stock NaOCl is 12% = 12g/100ml = 120g/l

You have to dilute your stock 12 times. If you want to prepre 100ml of NaOCl 1% the calculation is the follow:

100ml / 12 = 8.33 ml of stock 12% diluted to 100ml
100 ml - 8.33 ml = 91.67 ml of water to add.

8.33 ml stock 12% + 91.67 ml of water = 1% solution = 10,000 ppm
