How to Calculate Formation Factor?
Formation Factor calculator uses Formation Factor for Complexation = (Total Bound Ligand of Complex-Concentration of Unbound Ligand)/Total Metal Concentration of Complex to calculate the Formation Factor for Complexation, Formation Factor is the measure of the concentration of ligand bounded to the metal ion. Generally it is in the form of a ratio. Formation Factor for Complexation is denoted by n_{factor} symbol.
How to calculate Formation Factor using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Formation Factor, enter Total Bound Ligand of Complex (T_{CL°}), Concentration of Unbound Ligand (L_{complex}) & Total Metal Concentration of Complex (T_{CM°}) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Formation Factor calculation can be explained with given input values -> 1.388889 = (150-25)/90.
