What is microgram per liter?

The microgram per litre (or microgram per liter) is a unit of density in the metric system equal to 10-6 kilograms per cubic meter (1 μg/L = 10-6 kg/m3), the derived unit of density in the International System of Units (SI). It 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 (or micrograms/liter) 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.
