Answer:

#1# #"ppm"# #=# #1*mg*L^-1#. You have not given us a volume

Explanation:

A #"ppm"# is so called because #1# #L# of water has a mass of #1# #kg#, i.e. #10^6# #mg#.

So if you have #0.020# #g#, you have #20xx10^-3*g#, that is #20# #mg# or (!!IF THERE IS ONE LITRE OF SOLUTION!!) #20# #"ppm"#.
