Can anyone translate what k would be? I have never had to deal with a constant of proportionality before, and am not quite sure how to deal with it..

The resulting aggregates therefore

each have a net charge Q that is directly proportional to their molecular weight M:

Q= K1 M

where K1 (and in subsequent steps of this derivation K ) is a constant of proportionality.
