MOLWT Version 2.3
Do you ever need to do a quick molecular weight calculation from a
chemical formula, or want to know how many grams of Na2SO4.10H2O
are in 100 ml of a 0.076M solution? You can use MOLWT, a new shareware
program, to get instant answers, even at the DOS command-line.
MOLWT is a utility for simple chemical calculations
There are already some excellent chemical calculation programs,
including CHEMCALC. MOLWT is not as versatile as these, but
it is much faster for what it does do, and it needs only 50 KB of
disk space (half of which is documentation). It will run on any
DOS-based computer. Color is used for emphasis, but the screens
are legible on any kind of monitor.
Available by anonymous ftp from oak.oakland.edu in the
/SimTel/msdos/chemstry directory. The file is molwt.zip.
Or from garbo.uwasa.fi in the /pc/science directory,
Dont forget to enter the "binary" command before downloading!
The MOLWT.ZIP (or MOLWT23.ZIP) archive contains 3 files:
MW.EXE calculates molecular weight from an entered chemical
formula. Can be used at the DOS command line, or interactively.
SOLUTION.EXE gives concentrations in various units in response to
an entered formula and concentration. It works with MW.EXE
Can be used at the DOS command line, or interactively.
MOLWT.EXE is the documentation file, which can be read on screen
or printed in whole or part.
