Default Using liquid calcium chloride

Bought some liquid calcium chloride for the first time. It says it's 33%, guess that means the concentration.

Does anybody know the equivalent to regular, powdered calcium chloride? I'm using Palmer's Spreadsheet for water calcs and it uses grams. And I don't know if this liquid form is basically the same or if that 33% indicates that it's watered down. If it's the same, guess I can just weigh it. If it's 33% of the strength, I can calculate that. But looking to find out what the difference is with powdered calcium chloride.

How many ml per gram or vice versa?

Any insight is appreciated.

I would have to assume that 3 grams (or 3ml) of 33% CaCl liquid is the same as 1 gram of dry.
