convert mg/m³ to mg (silica)

How do I convert mg/m³ to mg? Or is it possible? I have 13 mg/m³ silica and need to find the weight...the total Liters captured were 280.995L. Sampled at 1.706lpm.

I am not completly sure I am following you. You have 280.995 liters of some solution which contains a trace amount (13 mg/m[sup]3[/sup]) of silica? And you need to find the weight of the silica, not the total weight of the solution right?
280.995 liter = 0.280995 cubic meter
0.280995 cubic meter * 13 milligram/cubic meter = 3.652935 milligrams
If you were looking for the weight of the total solution, would need to know its density.
