Solution: Glucose makes up about 0.10% by mass of human blood.Calculate this concentration in ppm.

Solution: Glucose makes up about 0.10% by mass of human blood.Calculate this concentration in ppm.

Problem

Glucose makes up about 0.10% by mass of human blood.

Calculate this concentration in ppm.

Solution

We are asked to calculate the concentration of 0.10% glucose in human blood in ppm.


When transforming one unit to another, recall the conversion factors and/or constants that will be used in the calculation.

Given:

0.10% glucose  ppm glucose


Recall the formula for mass %:

mass%=mass componentTotal mass× 100

Recall also that: 

1 ppm = 1 mg solute1 kg solution
