Full Answer

As of 2014, Hamilton's portrait, painted in 1805 by artist John Trumbull, is the only one that faces left on currently circulating U.S. paper currency. Before the 1928 series, previous forms of the $10 bill, including demand notes, National Gold Bank notes and silver certificates, carried 12 other faces with different vignettes on the reverse side. The first $10 Federal Reserve note, issued in 1914, featured President Andrew Jackson and had farming and industrial vignettes on the back.

  • Q:

    What is the best way to convert mg/kg to parts per million?

    A:

    If you are converting the mass of a substance from milligrams/kilograms (mg/kg) to parts per million (ppm), then the ratio is 1:1, and no conversion is necessary. Therefore, 1 mg/kg is the same as 1 ppm because 1 milligram is equal to 0.001 grams while 1 kilogram is equal to 1,000 grams. So, if you divide 0.001 by 1,000, then the result is 0.000001, which is a millionth of a gram, making it the same as 1 part per million.
