Saturated Paste - Sodium Ion calculations.

Modified on: Wed, 11 May, 2022 at 12:10 PM

To convert sodium concentration from saturated paste results from mg/L to mg/kg:

Saturation% = (Water in Paste (g) / Dry Sample (g) ) x 100%  = (Water in Paste (mL) / Dry sample (g)) x 100%

Soluble Na (mg/L) x Saturation% = (Soluble Na ( mg / 1000 mL)) x (( Water in Paste (mL) / (Dry Sample 0.001 kg)) = Soluble Na (mg/kg)
