An analysis of a wet sludge sample on a ppm weight basis indicates a value of 2900 ppm. The sample has a dry solids content of 19% (by weight) or a moisture content of 81% (by weight).

An analysis of a wet sludge sample on a ppm weight basis indicates a value of 2900 ppm. The sample has a dry solids content of 19% (by weight) or a moisture content of 81% (by weight). I have seen numerous computations including: ppm dry = ppm wet/% solids or, ppm dry = ppm wet/% moisture content Which is correct....
