Enter the total concentration of a solute and the mass of the total solution into the calculator to determine the volume of the solute.

Concentration Volume Formula

The following formula is used to calculate a volume from a concentration.

V = M / (C/100)

  • Where V is the volume of the particular substance in the solution
  • M is the mass of the solution
  • C is the concentration of the substance in the overall solution (%)

Concentration Volume Definition

What is a concentration volume?

Concentration volume is a term used to describe the relationship between the concentration of a substance in a solution and its total volume.

The concentration is most often expressed in terms of a percentage by volume or weight.

Example Problem

How to calculate volume from concentration?

The following example outlines the information and steps needed to calculate a volume from a concentration.

First, determine the concentration of the substance in the solution. In this case, the concentration is found to be 45%.

Next, determine the mass of the solution. For this example, the mass of the solution is 50 grams.

Finally, calculate the volume using the formula above:

V = M / (C/100)

V = 50 / (45/100)

V = 111.11
