Default how to use potassium sorbate?

I am going to keg, sweeten, and carb my cider for the first time later this week but after doing some searching I can't really find a set guide on how to use the potassium sorbate/camden tablets for this 5 gallon batch. Can somebody link or share how much of each to use and how to add them?
Thanks!

I'm not crazy about the taste of sorbate, but it does the job. use half the recommend dose of campden/k-meta, stir and let it sit for 15-30 min. Then add the full dose of sorbate.

Thanks. Hopefully the backsweetening will be able to overpower the sorbate taste.
