    Partition Coefficient (Urgent)

    Hello all, I am facing difficulties answering these questions. Any sort of help will be appreciated as my exams are really close! 1) Butanoic acid (pKa = 4.83) has a partition coefficient of 5.4 (favouring benzene) when distributed between water and benzene. Find the concentration of butanoic...

    Solubility and Partition Coefficients

    I did an experiment on partition coefficients using a separatory funnel. If I try to calculate the partition coefficient of ethanoic acid in water and heptane, will ethanoic acid be more soluble in water or heptane? / Would the molecules of ethanoic acid go more in the water or the heptane? I...

    Just need someone to double check this chemistry question, Partition Coefficient?

    Partition coefficient Kp equation Kp= Csolvent1(gL-1) / Csolvent2(gL-1) How do you answer this question: The solubility in water of compound A is 10g/100ml. The solubility in ether for compound A is 1g/100ml. What is the partition coefficient (Kp ether/water) for compound A? I got a Kp= 0.1...
