Lab math in the histology lab

Parts in 100 Percentage
Substance being dissolved Solute
The substance in which something is dissolved Solvent
Another way to write 10% 1:10 1/10 10/100
What type of glass ware should be used for measuring solutions Volumetric Glassware
Percent solution equation % desired:100=g or mL needed: volume desired
Method of compensating for variances in the actual dye content of dry dyes used in the preparation of staining solutions Gravimetric Factor
Gravimetric Factor Concentration of present dye/concentration of new dye=gravimetric factor
A 1M solution contains 1 gram molecular weight of a substance dissolved in enough water to give a final volume of 1 L.
A 1N solution 1 gram equivalent weight of solute per liter of solution
Molecular weight divided by the number of dissociable or replaceable hydrogen ions 1N solution
Equation to determine the weight of a substance needed for molar solutions weight in grams=MxVxFW M=desired Molarity V=desired Volume in Liters FW= Formula weight (molecular weight) including any water of hydration
Equation to determine the weight of a substance needed for normal solutions weight in grams= (NxVxFW)/ v N=desired Normality V=Desired volume in Liters FW= Formular weight (molecular weight) including any water of hydration v=positive valence, or number of dissociable or replaceable hydrogen ions
deci one-tenth part of
milli one-thousandth part of
centi one-hundreth part of
micro one-millionth part of (micron)
nano one-billionth part of
kilo one thousand times

1 qt 0.95 L
Normal body temp (Celsius) 37 degrees Celsius
Conversion of Fahrenheit to Celsius degrees Celsius= ((degrees Fahrenheit-32)x5)/ 9
Conversion from Celsius to Fahrenheit degrees Fahrenheit= ((degrees Celsius x9)/5)+32

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.
