Enter the mass of the solids and the total mass of the slurry into the calculator to determine the percent solids in the slurry.

Percent Solids In Slurry Formula

The following equation is used to calculate the Percent Solids In Slurry.

%S = MS / MSL * 100

  • Where %S is the percent solids in slurry (%)
  • MS is the mass of all solids in the slurry
  • MSL is the mass of the entire slurry

To calculate the percent solids in a slurry, divide the mass of the solids by the mass of the slurry, then multiply by 100.

What is Percent Solids In Slurry?

Definition:

A percent solids in a slurry is the ratio of the mass of solids to the mass of an entire slurry solution.

How to Calculate Percent Solids In Slurry?

Example Problem:

The following example outlines the steps and information needed to calculate Percent Solids In Slurry.

First, determine the mass of the solids. In this example, the mass of the solids is found to be 400 grams.

Next, determine the mass of the total slurry. For this problem, the total slurry mass is measured to be 800 grams.

Finally, calculate the percent solids in slurry using the formula above:

%S = MS / MSL * 100

%S = 400 / 800 * 100

%S = 50%
