Chromatography retardation factor Rf calculator - formula & step by step calculation to measure the dissolving the mixture or seperation of mixture in the fluid. R = 1 + (ρ/η) x Kd. Fluid buld density ρ in kg/m3, porosity η in percentage & distribution coefficient Kd are the key elements of this calculation.
Formula for Retardation Factor
In environmental engineering, the below formula is used to calculate the Retardation factor Rf in the context of chromatography to seperate the mixture in the fluid or mobile phase. The step by step calculation for each set of inputs let users to understand how to perform such hazardous emission rate to air calculations manually.
