Help KH conversion

I recieved my new test kit. My kh kit reads in mg/l and mine is 100. How does this relate to ppm. Or what is the kh reading on the sticky chart for kh/ph/co2.

ppm equals mg/l.

Divide by 17.8 or so to get to the more commonly used degrees.

So your kH is approximately 5.6179775281. Perfect I'd say.

Thanks!!!!!!!!

I was just googling around to find a conversion. So with a Kh of 5.617977528and a Ph of 6.8 would put me around 26-27 ppm. Not bad I guess, might try to push it closer to 30 ppm.
