How to Calculate and Solve for the Mass, Volume and Mass Concentration in Chemistry | The Calculator Encyclopedia

The image above represents the mass concentration.

To compute the mass concentration, two essential parameters are needed and these parameters are mass (m) and volume (V).

The formula for calculating mass concentration:

ρ = mV

Where;
ρ = Mass concentration
m = Mass
V = Volume

Let’s solve an example;
Find the mass concentration when the mass is 8 kg with a volume of 24 dm³.

This implies that;
m = Mass = 8
V = Volume = 24

ρ = mV
ρ = 824
ρ = 0.33

Therefore, the mass concentration is 0.33 Kg/dm³.

Calculating the Mass when the Mass Concentration and the Volume is Given.

m = Vρ

Where;
m = Mass
ρ = Mass concentration
V = Volume

Let’s solve an example;
Find the mass when the mass concentration is 12 kg/dm³ with a volume of 7 dm³.

This implies that;
ρ = Mass concentration = 12
V = Volume = 7

m = Vρ
m = 12 x 7
m = 84

Therefore, the mass concentration is 84 kg.

Calculating the Volume when the Mass Concentration and the Mass is Given.

V = m / ρ

Where;
V = Volume
m = Mass
ρ = Mass concentration

Let’s solve an example;
Find the volume when the mass concentration is 18 kg/dm³ with a mass of 32 kg.

This implies that;
ρ = Mass concentration = 18
m  = Mass = 32

V = m / ρ
V = 32 / 18
V = 1.77

Therefore, the volume is 1.77 dm3.
