Electrolyte NaOH concentrations?
If I use 100% Lye for household use, sold as Rooto 1lb at Ace Hardware or 2lb Rhoebic at Lowes...

And I mix at 1Tbsp/Gallon of water, how do I calculate the percent concentration?

1 Gallon = 256 Tbp- so I have 1/257= .0039- is it only .39% solution?

Always remember there is a fine line between genius and insanity, so don't cross it.
Wile E. Coyote never learned and he was a SUPER GENIUS! Roadrunner made him insane.
If all great minds thought alike, we'd get nowhere, the differences can make us all prosper.

It was for something else non-HHO related that required a 2% NaOH Solution- 3D model Cleaning...

FYI- I only made the above ~.4% solution as that was all I felt comfortable working with and it worked great... I later calculated the % concentration and discovered how low it actually was, but I don't plan to go above .8% for that purpose- might be able to reduce the soak time if I do.- Sorry to go off topic somewhat.
