Could you please explain what formula and step are invovled and please provide (example) if possible
A stoppered flask at 25 C contains 250 mL water, 200 mL octanol, and 50 mL of air. An unknown mass of o-xylene is added to the flask and allowed to partition among the phases. After equilibrium has been established, 5.0 mg of o-xylene are measured in the water.
What is the total mass (g) of o-xylene present in the flask?© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com September 25, 2018, 11:41 am ad1c9bdddf - https://brainmass.com/chemistry/chemical-equilibrium/partition-xylene-among-phases-162502
