Enter the weight of the sodium tartrate (mg) and the volume of the reagent (mL) into the Water Factor Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Water Factor.

## Water Factor Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Water Factor.

WF = WS / VR

Variables:

• WF is the Water Factor (mg/mL)
• WS is the weight of the sodium tartrate (mg)
• VR is the volume of the reagent (mL)

## How to Calculate Water Factor?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Water Factor.

1. First, determine the weight of the sodium tartrate (mg).
2. Next, determine the volume of the reagent (mL).
3. Next, gather the formula from above = WF = WS / VR.
4. Finally, calculate the Water Factor.
5. 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.

weight of the sodium tartrate (mg) = 30

volume of the reagent (mL) = 50

WF = WS / VR = ?
