    Hola:
    En un certificado de riqueza garantizada (guaranteed analysis) a los porcentajes les sigue las siglas "p/p".

    Por ej.: Hierro (Fe) ....0,7% (p/p)

    In English language guaranteed analyses they don't put anything after the percentage, eg: Iron (Fe) 0.7%.

    ¿Alguien me puede aclarar a qué se refiere "p/p"? ¿Por peso? ¿Punto porcentual? Gracias.

    Creo que se refiere a "parte proporcional", o sea tanto de tierra/roca/tanto de mineral.

    Saludos, t.

    Se analiza por volumen (p/v) o por peso (p/p).

    Lovely, thanks very much. Jim

    If anyone is interested the English equivalent then is (w/w%), not usually specified as it understood by default in the absesnce of indication to the contrary.

    Leí todo el hilo y el enlace pero sigo sin entender demasiado...:(

    La frase que tengo que traducir (sobre el metanol) es "Agua: no más de 0,01% p/p". Jim986 había dicho que en inglés es "w/w": ¿es así?

    Muchas gracias.

    Hi silky,
    Yes, p/p (peso por peso) is w/w in English. %w/w (percentage weight per weight) representes the number of grams of solute in 100 grams of solution.
