Dry Matter Calculator
The Dry Matter Calculator is a tool used in agriculture and food science to determine the percentage of dry matter in a given sample. Dry matter refers to the solid material remaining in a sample after removing all the water content. It is commonly used to assess the nutrient composition and quality of various agricultural products, such as crops, forages, and animal feeds.
The formula for calculating dry matter percentage is: Dry Matter Percentage = (Dry Weight / Total Weight) * 100
If you have a sample with a dry weight of 80 grams and a total weight (including water) of 100 grams, the dry matter percentage would be calculated as follows: Dry Matter Percentage = (80 grams / 100 grams) * 100 = 80%
