Solubility

Description

The solubility of a gas, SG, is defined as concentration divided by partial pressure, SG = cG·pG-1.

Abbreviation: SG

Reference: Hitchman and Gnaiger 1983

The solubility of a gas (Hitchman and Gnaiger 1983) — sometimes called the 'solubility coefficient' — is related to the classical Bunsen absorption coefficient, α (see Forstner and Gnaiger 1983). SG has the dimension of molar amount of the gas per volume of the solution per partial pressure of the gas, α has the dimension of volume of the gas (STPD) per volume of the solution per partial pressure of the gas.
The inverse of SG is related to the activity coefficient (concentration basis) of the gas (see Activity),
γB = SG-1·c°/p°
