Abstract

If solute particles are heterogeneous with regard to size, shape or configuration then physical measurements give an average value of the molecular weight and size. Consider a heterogeneous system of N molecules where N i is the number of molecules of each component, c i the weight concentration in g/ml, and M i the molecular weight of each component. The number fraction n i of molecules having molecular weight M i will be N i /N and N = Σ Ni, c = Σ ci.
