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:

  1. First, determine the grams of sucrose (g). 
    1. The grams of sucrose (g) is given as: 12.
  2. Next, determine the grams of solution (g). 
    1. The grams of solution (g) is provided as: 600.
  3. 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) = ?
