The Stock Solution Formulation Calculator determines the amount of an additive required to yield a stock solution with a given volume and concentration.
Input Field Definitions
Target Concentration – The desired concentration of the additive in the stock solution.
Solution Volume – The volume of the stock solution being made.
Output Field Definitions
Mass of Additive Required – The mass of the additive required to yield the desired concentration of the additive in the specified volume of stock solution.
Concentration is mass per unit volume. So, the required mass is simply the desired volume multiplied by the desired concentration, or:
ma = vscs
ma = mass of additive, kg
vs = solution volume, liters
cs = concentration of substance in solution, kg/L
