The lethal dose of potassium cyanide (KCN) in Rats is 10mg KCN per kilogram of body weight. What is the concentration in parts per million (ppm)


The lethal dose of potassium cyanide (KCN) in Rats is 10mg KCN per kilogram of body weight. What is the concentration in parts per million (ppm)

Step 1

A ppm is nothing but an abbreviation of the term “parts per million” and this quantity can also be expressed as (mg/L). One ppm is also equal to the absolute fractional value of an amount multiplied by one million.

Step 2

It can also be regarded as the measurement of the concentration of a given solution.

Step 3

Here we have been given the value of lethal dose of potassium cyanide in rate to be 10mg/kg of th...
