Enter the total weight (g) and the total volume (mL) into the Weight Volume Percent Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Weight Volume Percent. 

Weight Volume Percent Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Weight Volume Percent.

WVP = W / V * 100


  • WVP is the Weight Volume Percent (%)
  • W is the total weight (g) 
  • V is the total volume (mL) 

To calculate the weight volume percent, divide the weight by the volume, then multiply by 100.

How to Calculate Weight Volume Percent?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Weight Volume Percent.

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the total weight (g).
    • The total weight (g) is given as:: 12.
  2. Next, determine the total volume (mL).
    • The total volume (mL) is provided as: 100.
  3. Finally, calculate the Weight Volume Percent using the equation above: 

WVP = W / V * 100

The values provided above are inserted into the equation below and computed.

WVP = 12 / 100 * 100 = 12.00 (%)

Example Problem #2: 

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

total weight (g) = 13

total volume (mL) = 50
