Enter the total percentage concentration (%) into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the PPM from Percent. This calculator can also calculate percent from PPM.

PPM from Percent Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the PPM from Percent.

PPM = P * 10,000


  • PPM is the PPM from Percent (parts per million)
  • P is the total percentage concentration (%) 

To calculate PPM from Percent, multiply the percentage value, typically a concentration, by 10,000.

How to Calculate PPM from Percent?

The following steps outline how to calculate the PPM from Percent.

  1. First, determine the total percentage concentration (%). 
  2. Next, gather the formula from above = PPM = (%) * 10,000.
  3. Finally, calculate the PPM from Percent.
  4. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem : 

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

total percentage concentration (%) = .25

PPM = (%) * 10,000 = ?
