CO2 saturation in saline water

  1. Jan 25, 2016 #1
    i am studying a system of dissolved CO2. it is in oversaturation, and NOT in equilibrium. but i dont know how to express its saturation level. all i know is the molar fraction of CO2 that escapes after reaching equilibrium. how can i calculate that?

    The same way you'd calculate anything else; composition of starting mixture/solution minus composition of "equilibrium" mixture.
