Is this what you wanted to know?
Or do you want to know how much original material you need in order to get 0.2 grams of your compund of interest?

Originally posted by MikeWrong. It depends on the density of each substance.
Ppm is an ambiguous term because it can be calculated on a mass, volume, or molefraction ratio.
Assuming mass/mass is meant, the above interpretation is correct.
Actually ppm on v/v basis is not too common, It is usually mass/mass for solids and mole/mole for gases. Liquids may be mass over mass, or mass over a volume of one liter assumed to be a kilogram.

Re: how to convert 1.61 g/kg to porcent (%) if the sample is soil
I sended a soil sample to chemical soil laboratory. The analisys answer for TOTAL NITROGEN IS : 1.61 g/kg. I need to convert this value ( 1.61 ) to porcent (%). How i can do this ? Easier, let me know the answer directly. Please.
THANKS.

Because of the intermediate dilution only part of your initial 2 g sample contributed to the 100 mL of solution, specifically 2 g x 0.25 mL/50 mL, or 10 mg. Therefore the concentration in your sample was 2.83 µg/10 mg, or 0.283 mg/g.

1.61 g/kg is literally 1.61 parts per thousand parts. You wants parts per hundred parts (percent). It is 0.161 parts per hundred or 0.161%
