Converting COD of Kg/day into mg/litre

Need some help converting COD in kg/day into mg/litre.

Try this, it is the best that I can find. Hope it helps

There are 1000mg in 1g, 1000g in 1kg, and 1000kg in 1t.

There are 1000L in 1m.

There are 3600 seconds in an hour and 24 hours in a day (if you run continuously)

Your concentration in mg/L is the same as your grams/m.

To get the grams per second, multiply by the m/s, to get the weight in an hour multiply by 3600, to get the weight in a day multiply by 24. (If you run continuously).

For example, if you have a concentration of 76mg/L urea, and a flow rate of 0.145m/s, the calculation is

76g x 0.145m x 3600s x 24h = 952128g, or 952kg, or 0.95 tonnes of urea per day.

Hi Harry23,

I dont know what is COD stand for, but in my opinion Kg/day is a mass flow unit while mg/litre is a density unit so it would not be possible for us to do a conversion between them.

I think that he is talking about Chemical Oxygen Demand but it would be good if the writer would confirm!!
