The relation of rat liver wet weight to dry weight.


To assess a reliable relation between the dry and wet weight of rat livers, the water content of liver samples was determined by freeze drying. The ratio between wet and dry weight of the livers turned out as 3.33 +/- 0.3 for male and 3.28 +/- 0.24 for female rats. Thus for calculations a value of 3.3 can be used irrespective of the sex of rats.
