    I'm not sure you've given quite enough information but try this for size-

    40 ppm (is it v/v or w/v; presumably v/v?) is 40 ml/m3

    24000 cubic feet is 680 m3

    Total volume of ammonia is therefore 40 x 680 = 27.2 litres

    1 mole of an ideal gas occupies 22.4 litres, therefore have 1.21 moles of ammonia

    1.21 moles of ammonia has a mass of 18 g (0.04 lb)
