A dilution means the solution obtained by adding a solvent to a concentrated solution. By adding the solvent the concentration of the dissolved substance is reduced.
An example of a solvent is water, which has the characteristic of reducing the concentration of many solutions.
An example of dilution can be the following: liquid soap concentrated in 500ml water is added in a ratio of 1:30. This means that we will use one part soap to 30 parts water.
The calculation formula is as follows:
Tp = 1 + Rd (Tp = 1+30 = 31)
Tsn = Ts : Tp (Tsn = 500 : 31 = 16,13ml)
Ns = Ts - Tsn (Ns = 500 - 16,13 = 483,87ml)
Tp = Total parts solution
Rd = Dilution ratio (ex. 20 from 1:20)
Tsn = Total solution needed to dilute
Ts = Total resulting solution
Ns = Need solvent
The module is below:
The field Total solution means the total amount of solution we want to get.
The field Proportion (1:X) means the dilution ratio of the solution. At a ratio of 1:30 X is 30 and it is entered in the form.
When you press the button Calculated the result will be displayed in the next 2 fields.
The field Initial liquid: ml means the initial amount of solvent.
The field Liquid to add: ml means the amount of solution added to the solvent.
