Fatty Acid Calculator
Fatty acids are the building blocks of the fat in our bodies and in the food we eat. Fatty Acid is made up of saturated or unsaturated aliphatic compounds with an even number of carbon atoms; this group of acids includes palmitic, stearic, and oleic acids. Fatty acids have the general formula CnH2n+1COOH that contain a large group of monobasic acids, especially those found in animal and vegetable fats and oils.
Percentage of free fatty acid = (V * N * F /weight of sample)
V - Volume of sodium hydroxide
N - Normality of sodium hydroxide
F - Equivalent factor
