Comparative studies of calculation methods for activity coefficients of unsymmetrical mixed electrolytes

Abstract

Several methods for the calculation of activity coefficients for binary mixed electrolytes are compared. Their accuracies are analysed and the reasons for the different degrees of accuracies are given.
