Formula:S = s / (w × 10)

Introduction to Sedimentation Rate

The Svedberg equation is used to calculate the sedimentation rate of a particle in a centrifuge. In the formula, S represents the sedimentation rate, s is the sedimentation coefficient, and w is the angular velocity. The result is expressed in Svedberg units (S).

Parameter usage:

Example valid values:


Data validation

The sedimentation coefficient (s) should be a positive number, and the angular velocity (w) should be a positive number representing rotations per minute.


This calculator helps to compute the sedimentation rate of a particle in a centrifuge, based on the sedimentation coefficient and angular velocity.
