chemists - grams per cubic metre to ppm

My chemistry is rusty.  Gas in air concentrations are often given in grams per cubic meter rather than parts per million.  Take for example hydrogen sulphide gas.  What's the go?

They are both different types of units.

"gram/cubic meter" is density.
"part/million" is (mass basis) concentration.

As to the why... I don't know. As a gas, it would be common to state in grams per cubic meter, but as air concentration I would assume they would state it in parts per million.

I suppose I should not have even posted this response, since I did nothing to answer your question. :)

Dear Douglas,

Did you ever get the answer to your question re. ppm and g/m3 ???

I would be glad to hear if you did.
