In other words, this calculator can answer the question of what weights of each input product is required in order to achieve a certain % at a fixed final weight. For example, you need to achieve a total weight of 5000kg with 75% concentration. You will use 65% and 85% to create the final concentration. What weight of each product would be required to achieve the total weight at the correct %? Formulas, as usual, can be found below the calculator.

### Mixing products of different concentrations

We can get the result only under the assumption that the volume of the final mixture equals to the sum of the volumes of two inputs, i.e. the rule of additivity of volumes is satisfied. Obviously, the total amount of mass is conserved during mixing. Thus we can write using mass concentration:

, where

Cₓ is the target mass concentration

mₓ is the final mass of the mixture

Vₓ - final volume of the mixture

m₁ - mass of the first input

C₁ - mass concentration of the first input

V₁ - volume of the first input

m₂ - mass of the second input

C₂ - mass concentration of the second input

V₂ - volume of the second input

From the obtained formula we express the ratio of volumes of input mixtures

This formula is what is used in the calculator to get the ratio. Then this ratio is applied to the final mass to get the mass of each input.
