Fraction of solute in layer 1 = (K

_{D}*V

_{1})/((K

_{D}*V

_{1})+V

_{2})

where K

_{D}=Distribution coefficient for the solute between chemical in V

_{1}and chemical in V

_{2}

V

_{1}=Volume of liquid in layer 1

V

_{2}=Volume of liquid in layer 2

I understand that to find the fraction of A in the total A+B you simply divide A by A+B. But how does the distribution coefficient fit into this?
