Parts per million Solutions are crisps of chemistry.

We always consume solutions in our daily lives, from the sodas we drink to the air we breathe. Solutions are groups of molecules that are mixed up in a completely even distribution. Scientists refer solutions to be a part of the homogeneous systems, having one phase visible. Given the definition of solution, what if we divide solutions and look into its tiny concentration. Concentration is the abundance of constituents in a certain solution. It is the amount of a substance per defined space. Concentration usually is expressed in terms of mass per unit volume. There are instances that we encounter very small concentration. For very small concentrations, such as those encountered with safe limits of heavy metals, we use the unit ppm
