 # The recommended concentration of fluoride in a community water supply is:
A. 0.1 ppm
B. 0.5 ppm
C. 1 ppm
D. 2 ppm


The correct answer is C. 1 ppm.

A formula given by Galagan and Vermillion is used to decide the amount of fluoride that should be added to the drinking water and is as follows: 
Galagan and Vermillion formula: Amount of fluoride in ppm = 0.34/E
Where E = – 0.038+0.0062 × temperature in °F. 

Recommended= 0.7 to 1.2 ppm (0.7 ppm in tropical climate and 1.2 ppm in cold climate).
