(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

what is the weight percent concentration of SO2 in the exsolved aqueous fluid phase that existed with solution if sulphur has ppm by weight of 90. partition coefficient= 47

2. Relevant equations

partition coefficient- 47= concentration of aqueous fluid/ concentration of solution

3. The attempt at a solution

weight % of sulphur= 32/32+2(16)= 0.5

weight % of oxygen= 0.5

90 ppmw sulphur, since there is 1 mole of sulphur and 2 of oxygen there is 180 ppmw oxygen. for a total of 270 ppmw SO2.

47= 270ppmw/x

x= 270/47

x= 5.74

im not really sure if this is correct, if it isnt could someone point me in the right direction?
