calculating peroxide concentrations

Hi,I'm trying to work out what volume of a 50% peroxide solution (590.6g/L) to add to 20L to deliver a 150ppm concentration of peroxide.Appreciate any help with this calculation this forum can offer.Thanksmatt

% to ppm conversion

So a 150 ppm solution = 0.015 % solution.  You will therefore need to perform a 50/0.015 = 3333.33333.. fold dilution.So the volume of 50% solution to add to 20L is equal to:20000 ml / 3333.3333 = 6.0 ml
