Table-5: Distribution coefficient for Pb(II) ion at 100.0 mg/L for different temperatures and pH values and thermodynamic functions for Pb(II) at 298.15 K.
3 indicates that when the humic acid concentration was lower than the optimum concentration, the distribution coefficient of Ni in the acetic acid-soluble fraction continued to decrease as the humic acid concentration increased.
From the viewpoint of producing MGC with very fine-grained texture and a higher Ce distribution coefficient, the [mu]-PD method is a useful and favorable method for the production of yellow phosphors for white LEDs.
Based on Equations (5) and (7), the distribution coefficient D can be reformulated into Equation (8) or further simplified into Equation (9) by considering the logarithm:
Nevertheless, despite the revealed differences, an increase in MM 280/254 nm distribution coefficient for both histological types of non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) (+4.0 and 91.9% for AC and SCC, respectively) is observed; thereat, the increase in this parameter is statistically significant for SCC (P = 0.0180).
This leaves the distribution coefficient between wood composites and air K, the mass transfer coefficient D of formaldehyde inside the wood composites, the mass transfer coefficient [h.sub.g] of formaldehyde in the air phase, the initial release concentration [M.sub.0] of formaldehyde from wood composites, and the thickness correction factor f of the wood composites.
On a mole fraction basis, the distribution coefficient can be expressed by
Capacitances and reactive powers of filters are directly proportional to reactive power distribution coefficients [M.sub.i], and inductance and resistance are inversely proportional to these coefficients.
The decrease in binding percentage was observed by increase in initial concentration of sorbate with corresponding decrease in distribution coefficient 'Rd' (Fig.
At that, to use a single solvent extraction equation, the analyzed oil distribution coefficient Kt must be found experimentally beforehand [1, 2].
After calculations to achieve an average risk of landslides, there has resulted a non-uniform spatial distribution coefficient K(m).
Furthermore, the effects of various design parameters such as dye concentration, surfactant concentration, electrolyte concentration, and cloud point temperature on the phase volume ratio, preconcentration factor, distribution coefficient, and extraction efficiency were calculated (Table 1).
