Enter the total amount of sodium and the total amount of potassium into the Sodium to Potassium Ratio Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Sodium to Potassium Ratio.

## Sodium to Potassium Ratio Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Sodium to Potassium Ratio.

SPR = S / P
• Where SPR is the Sodium to Potassium Ratio (sodium:potassium)
• S is the total amount of sodium
• P is the total amount of potassium

To calculate the sodium to potassium ratio, simply divide the amount of sodium by the amount of potassium.

## How to Calculate Sodium to Potassium Ratio?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Sodium to Potassium Ratio.

Example Problem #1:

1. First, determine the total amount of sodium.
• The total amount of sodium is given as: 50.
2. Next, determine the total amount of potassium.
• The total amount of potassium is provided as: 500.
3. Finally, calculate the Sodium to Potassium Ratio using the equation above:

SPR = S / P

The values given above are inserted into the equation below and the solution is calculated:

SPR = 50 / 500 = .10 : 1 (sodium:potassium)

Example Problem #2:

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

total amount of sodium = 60

total amount of potassium = 700
