## What is Percent by Weight?

Percent by weight or percent by mass is the percent of the total mass of the solution that is one component. Solutions can be described in other concentrations besides molarity, normality, or molality. Solutions are sometimes represented in terms of relative percent concentration of solute in a solution. To determine the weight percent of a solution, divide the mass of solute by the mass of the solution (solute and solvent together) and multiply by 100 to obtain percent.

## How to Calculate Percent by Weight?

Percent by Weight calculator uses Percent By Weight=Gram of Solute/100 g of Solution to calculate the Percent By Weight, Percent By Weight is the total volume of solution. Percent By Weight and is denoted by % by wt. symbol.
