Hello, how to convert g/ton to cc?

For example, I have a 1% KAX solution. I will use 30 g/ton of this, how many cc do I need to add?

I imagine you want to perform flotation tests. If you plan to use 1-kg charges, you should add 3 cc. Similarly, if you consider 2-kg charges, you should add 6 cc.

basic formula is

Volume(cc)=mass(t)xdosage(gpt)/concentration(g/ml or g/cc)



  1. 100t
  2. 30gpt
  3. 20% or g/ml

Vol. = (100t x30 g/t)/ 0.2 g/cc

       = 15,000cc or 15Lt

Dear Boyd,

Where can I find Tables for Flotation Reagent Equivalents in SI Units.
