Simple equations for predicting volume properties of aqueous concentrated electrolyte mixtures

  • Anil Kumar
Physical and Theoretical


Simple equations are presented for predicting density, compressibility and expansivity of aqueous mixed electrolyte solutions. These equations do not require any empirical parameter. Equations are tested upto very concentrated solutions and at various temperatures. It is essential to know the properties of single electrolyte solutions for predicting properties in mixtures. Predicted properties are in excellent agreement with experimental data.
