08/12/09 4 Unit of Concentration Is 1 μ g/cm 3 SO 2 equal to 1 ppm SO 2 ? The annual standard of NO 2 is 100 μ g/m 3 . What is the concentration in ppb? Is “ppm” molar basis, volume basis or mass basis? What’s the difference between “ACFM” and “SCFM”? Section 7.1.2
08/12/09 5 Concentration on a “dry” basis Water vapor is commonly present in a heated gas stream, e.g., combustion of a hydrocarbon fuel. Water vapor can condense as temperature cools down.
