Vapor Density: 1.3

  1. Mar 25, 2005 #1
    For a solution It says; VAPOR DENSITY: 1.3
    Is VAPOR DENSITY the same as Density of that solution? And what is the unit of 1.3?

    Hope for inputs.

    Vapor density of 1.3 means, in my opinion, that this solution has 1.3 times more of that molecule in the gas phase than the solution in the equilibrium.

    Vapor density refers to the density of a vapor, in units such as g/m^3 or kg/m^3. Since you don't indicate any units, I think it means something different here. I found this URL:
    According to that convention, your solution would produce a vapor with a density 1.3 times that of air. What IS the solution? Do you know?
