The microgram per liter (μg/L) is also equal to 10-9 kilograms per cubic decimeter (kg/dm3), or 10-6 grams per cubic decimeter (g/dm3), or 10-9 grams per cubic centimeter (g/cm3), or 10-9 kilograms per liter (kg/L), or 10-6 grams per liter (g/L) or 10-9 grams per milliliter (g/mL).

The density of a material expresses the mass of the material per unit of volume. Thus, micrograms per liter (μg/L) show how many micrograms of material are in a volume of one liter. The microgram is a unit of mass in the SI while the liter is a unit of volume in the metric system.
