How to calculate the RF value in leaf chromatography?

 

Dear student,
Please find below the answer:

The Rf value, also known as the retention factor value can be calculated by the following formula:
Rf= Distance travelled by the spot (use the centre of the spot) from its original location / Distance travelled by the solvent front from the same location 

Hope this clears your doubt.
Regards.
