Metal Weight Calculator

Top
The metal weight calculator will help to find the equivalent weight of a metal from a solution. Plugin all the given weight and the equivalent weight of the metal present in the solution. Suppose, A and B are the two metals present in the solution, then the equivalent weight of say metal A from a solution is calculated by,

$Equivalent \ weight \ of \ metal \ A$ = $\frac{Equivalent \ weight \ of \ metal \ B \ \times \ Weight \ of \ metal \ A}{Weight \ of \ metal \ B}$
 

Steps

Steps to calculate the equivalent weight of a metal :

Step 1 : Make a note of weights and equivalent weight of the metal from the problems.

Step 2 : From the formula given, get the result according to the problem.
$Equivalent \ weight \ of \ metal \ A$ = $\frac{Equivalent \ weight \ of \ metal \ B \ \times \ Weight \ of \ metal \ A}{Weight \ of \ metal \ B}$

Below are some of the problems on how to find the metal weight.

Solved Examples

Question 1: 9.0322 kg/dm$^3$ Na is dissolved with 6.241 kg/dm$^3$ of Cl to form NaCl solutiom. Calculate the equivalent weight of Na, if the equivalent weight of Cl is 24 kg/dm$^3$.
Solution:
 
Given :
Weight of Na = 9.0322 kg/dm$^3$,
Weight of Cl = 6.241 kg/dm$^3$,
Equivalent weight of Cl = 24 kg/dm$^3$,
Equivalent weight of Na = ?

Equivalent weight of Na = $\frac{Equivalent \ weight \ of \ Cl \ \times \ Weight \ of \ Na}{Weight \ of \ metal \ Cl}$

Equivalent weight of Na = $\frac{24 \ kg/dm^3 \ \times \ 9.032 \ kg/dm^3}{6.241 \ kg/dm^3}$

Equivalent weight of Na = $34.73 \ kg/dm^3$
 

Question 2: 6.42 kg/dm$^3$ Br is dissolved with 4.02 kg/dm$^3$ of K to form Kbr solutiom. Calculate the equivalent weight of Br, if the equivalent weight of K is 17 kg/dm$^3$.
Solution:
 
Given :
Weight of Br = 6.42 kg/dm$^3$,
Weight of K = 4.02 kg/dm$^3$,
Equivalent weight of K = 17 kg/dm$^3$,
Equivalent weight of Br = ?

Equivalent weight of Br = $\frac{Equivalent \ weight \ of \ K \ \times \ Weight \ of \ Br}{Weight \ of \ metal \ K}$

Equivalent weight of Br = $\frac{17 \ kg/dm^3 \ \times \ 6.42 \ kg/dm^3}{4.02 \ kg/dm^3}$

Equivalent weight of Br = $27.14 \ kg/dm^3$
