used when the final product is a solid (powder oint etc) and the component you are measuring the % is also a solid. Units in the numerator and denominator must be the same. (ie lb/lb) 

What is v/v?

Volume in volume.
is used when the final product is a liquid (solution) and the component you are measuring the % of is also a liquid. Units in the numerator and denominator must be the same (ie ml/ml)
