A dilution ratio calculator is used to determine the amount of volume or weight required to create a diluted solution. The required data for the calculator is the ratio of solvent to solute and the final volume you wish to prepare.

What is Dilition ratio?

Dilution ratio refers to the volume of solute and solvent required, based on their ratio and Final Volume of solution. Let’s suppose we are given or want to calculate the amount of sugar in water at a ratio of 100:1, and our desired volume of solution is 1500 ml. After inputting these values into a calculator, we find that 1485 ml of water and 15 ml (or 14.85 g) of sugar are needed to make 1500 ml of solution at a dilution ratio of 100:1.

How to calculate dilution ratio

Calculating the dilution ratio is easy but requires some math. There is no straightforward formula to calculate the dilution ratio, but there is a step-by-step process you can follow.

Steps to calculate dilution ratio

  • Determine the Dilution Ratio: The first thing you need is the dilution ratio and the desired volume you want to make. For example, let’s suppose you want to make a 250 ml solution with a ratio of 5:1, where 5 is the amount of solvent and 1 is the amount of solute.
  • Add the Dilution Ratio Values: Add up the dilution ratio values: 5 + 1 = 6.
  • Divide the Total Volume: Now divide the total volume by 6, as 250 ÷ 6=41.6
  • Now subtract 41.6 from total volume, as 250-41.6=208.4
  • Therefore, the volume of the solute is 41.67 ml, and the volume of the solvent is 208.33 ml.

The calculation is easy, but a dilution ratio calculator can make it more fluent for you, as it offers flexibility with different units. The above calculation is only valid when the volume is given in ml.

Examples

  • Example Calculation for Quick Detailer:

    • Assume a standard spray bottle holds 900 milliliters.
    • For a 5:1 dilution ratio, add the parts together: 5 + 1 = 6.
    • Divide the total volume (900 mL) by 6, resulting in 150 mL per part.
    • So, you would use 750 mL of water and 150 mL of product for a 5:1 dilution.
  • Example Calculation for Clay Lubricant:

    • For a 10:1 ratio, add the parts: 10 + 1 = 11.
    • Divide 900 mL by 11 to get 81.8 mL per part.
    • Use 818 mL of water and 82 mL of product for a 10:1 dilution.
  • Understanding Different Notations:

    • There is some  confusion around different notations, such as 1:100, which means 100 parts water to 1 part product.
    • To dilute a product 100:1, you add the parts (100 + 1 = 101), then divide 900 mL by 101, resulting in 8.9 mL of product and 891 mL of water.
  • Example for Degreaser:

    • For an 8:1 ratio, the parts add up to 9.
    • Divide 900 mL by 9, resulting in 100 mL per part.
    • Use 800 mL of water and 100 mL of product for an 8:1 dilution.

Where you can use dilution ratio calculator

A dilution ratio calculator is a very simple use in varieties of industries such such as Cleaning Solutions,Chemicals and Pharmaceuticals, Agriculture,  Cosmetics and thousands of others. The basic principle behind dilution ratio calculator is to convert the ratio of solute and solvent to exact volume and weight based on final desire volume.
