Henry's Law

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Thermodynamics

henrys lawHenry's law, one of the gas laws, at a constant temperature, the volume of a gas which will dissolve into a solution is directly porportional to the partial pressure of that gas above the solution in equilibrium with the liquid.


Henry's Law Constant formula

\(\large{ k_H = \frac{ p_{gas} }{ c_{gas} } }\)   


\(\large{ k_H }\) = Henry's law constant

\(\large{ c_{gas} }\) = the concentration of the solubility (gas) at a fixed temperature in a partial solution

\(\large{ p_{gas} }\) = the partial pressure of the gas
