convert mg/kg to mg/L
by dccd on 11/04/05 at 14:27:04
Working on a project that I received lab results in with mg/kg units, but need them to be converted to mg/L. I've read enough other postings that I think I need to use the item's density in the conversion process, but not sure. When I try to look up the density, it's giving it to me in another unit, furthering my confusion. Can anyone help? Please talk slow. I'm not a chemist.
The items are barium (61.4 mg/kg), chromium (173 mg/kg), arsenic (5.7 mg/kg) and lead (124mg/kg).

What is the substance those are disolved in? Is it water? Blood? For example, 61.4 mg/kg barium means 61.4 milligrams of barium per kilogram of what?
