Enter the grams of sucrose (g) and the grams of solution (g) into the Brix Density Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Brix Density.

## Brix Density Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Brix Density.

**BD = Su / (So/100)**

- Where BD is the Brix Density (Sucrose/(100XSolution))
- Su is the grams of sucrose (g)
- So is the grams of solution (g)

## How to Calculate Brix Density?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Brix Density.

Example Problem #1:

- First, determine the grams of sucrose (g).
- The grams of sucrose (g) is given as: 12.

- Next, determine the grams of solution (g).
- The grams of solution (g) is provided as: 600.

- Finally, calculate the Brix Density using the equation above:

BD = Su / (So/100)

The values given above are inserted into the equation below:

BD = 12 / (600/100) = 2 (Sucrose/(100XSolution))

Example Problem #2:** **

For this problem, the variables needed are provided below:

grams of sucrose (g) = 12

grams of solution (g) = 50

This example problem is a test of your knowledge on the subject. Use the calculator above to check your answer.

BD = Su / (So/100)** = ?**
