Abstract:

Chemical concentration is given in milligrams per liter mgL, micrograms per liter gL, or picomoles per liter pmolL. Milligrams per liter is a unit expressing the mass of a solute per unit volume liter of water. One thousand micrograms per liter is equivalent to 1 milligram per liter, and 1,000 milligrams per liter is equivalent to 1 gram per liter. The numerical value in milligrams per liter is about the same as for concentrations in parts per million, and the numerical value in micrograms per liter is about the same as for concentrations in parts per billion. Micromoles per liter is a unit expressing the number of moles of a solute per unit volume liter of water. One million picomoles per liter is equivalent to 1 micromole per liter, and one million micromoles per liter is equivalent to 1 mole per liter. Ultraviolet light absorbance is given in per centimeter cm. Wavelength of light is given in nanometers nm. Specific ultraviolet absorbance is given in liters per milligram per meter Lmgm and is equal to the ultraviolet light absorbance in per centimeter multiplied by 100 and divided by the dissolved organic carbon concentration in milligrams per liter. Specific trihalomethane formation potential is given in millimoles per mole mmolmol and is equal to the trihalomethane concentration in micromoles per liter divided by the dissolved organic carbon concentration in millimoles per liter. Bacterial cell density is given in cells per milliliter cellsmL.
