We’re being asked to calculate the concentration of sodium ions (Na+) in ppm in the sample solution. 

Let’s first define ppm and ppb.


1 ppm means 1 part of solute for every 106 parts of the solution

Can be written as:

ppm=mass of solutemass of solution×106


1 ppb means 1 part of solute for every 109 parts of the solution
