Enter the final weight (g), the initial weight (g), and the sample volume (mL) into the Total Soluble Solids Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Total Soluble Solids.

## Total Soluble Solids Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Total Soluble Solids.

TSS = (Wf - Wi) * 1,000,000 / SV

Variables:

- TSS is the Total Soluble Solids (mgTSS/L)
- Wf is the final weight (g)
- Wi is the initial weight (g)
- SV is the sample volume (mL)

To calculate the TSS, multiply the change in weight by 1,000,000, then divide by the sample volume.

## How to Calculate Total Soluble Solids?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Total Soluble Solids.

- First, determine the final weight (g).
- Next, determine the initial weight (g).
- Next, determine the sample volume (mL).
- Next, gather the formula from above = TSS = (Wf – Wi) * 1,000,000 / SV.
- Finally, calculate the Total Soluble Solids.
- After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

**Example Problem:**

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

final weight (g) = 30

initial weight (g) = 15

sample volume (mL) = 50

TSS = (Wf – Wi) * 1,000,000 / SV =** ** ?
