So I accidentally bought the wrong nicotine. In the past I have used Nicotine River’s 48mg PurNic E-Nicotene. This time I must have spaced out because I bought their Bulk PurNic Nicotene 3mg.
I usually vape at 6mg. I’m wondering if anyone can give me a formula for adding the 48mg to the 3mg to reach 6mg.
Much thanks for any help!
Like 1:16 will reduce ot to 3mg, so maybe adding 1 part 48mg to 15 parts 3mg will up it to 6?
Calculator didn’t tell me the answer though and that’s a lot of thinking to get to the actual guaranteed correct answer.
Honestly, I only replied at all because you’ve got hot catty eyes.
Someone else will come along who knows…
Why use our own brains when someone else will do it for us
You can put the two together:
x ml Nicotine 3mg/ml = y
x’ ml Nicotine 48mg/ml = y’
x + x’ = total ml.
y + y’ = total mg of Nicotine
Total Nicotine / total ml = strength of the nicotine obtained
50 ml Nicotine x 3mg/ml = 150 mg
50 ml Nicotine x 48mg/ml = 2400 mg
50ml + 50ml = 100ml
150mg + 2400mg = 2550mg
2550mg / 100ml = 25.50 mg/ml
And you get 100ml of nicotine at 25.50mg/ml
I adore mathematics…
I hope that helps and don’t get confused…
That calculator is slightly inaccurate - adding 8ml of 48mg/ml to 100ml of 3mg/ml will produce 108ml at 6.33mg/ml.
Adding 7.14ml will increase 100ml up to 6mg/ml.
Thank you for your reply. Your answer makes more sense than my math brain
Thank you so much! Any time I can use a calculator I’m better off!
Great! Thank you so much! Looks just like what I need and didn’t know existed.
Thanks for the clarification.
My teachers always said there would be a use for algebra. I guess they were right. Thanks so much!
There isn’t an inaccuracy; the calculator just tells you the combined value. You can tweak the amounts to obtain the desired results:
The calculator isn’t inaccurate - my example was. You are correct 7.14 mls of 48mg/ml will get you to 6mg/ml dilution with an addition of 100mls of 3mg/ml nic. The calculator works fine:
My subtle attempt at avoiding any mention of operator error failed, it seems.
No harm no foul - I was just trying to be of assistance. They may not want to mix 107.14mls of base either, but they can find a solution to the question with the calculator.
