Total Chemical Application Weight

This calculator finds how much dry chemical to mix with water.

Area that the Chemical is Applied to:
Application Rate:
Mix Concentration (concentration of desired chemical in dry media):
%
Dry Chemical Weight:

 

Minimum Water Volume for Mixing Dry Chemicals

This calculates the minimum amount of water that must be mixed with dry chemicals in order to get the chemicals dissolved into solution. Adding more water than the minimum is necessary.

Weight of Dry Chemical to be Dissolved:
Chemical Solubility:
Minimum Added Water:

 

 

The Equations

To calculate the weight of dry chemical needed use this formula.

Where:

= The mass of the chemical to be applied in pounds (lbs).

= The area in acres (acres).

= Rate to apply by pounds per acre (lbs/acre)

= Percent concentration in the mix.
