Henry's Lawhenrys law

Henry'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 Formila

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


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

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

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