The fraction of an analyte in the rth stage of a N stage separation if given by f(N,r)=(N!/r!(N-r)!p^r q^(N-r). Given: distribution ratios of 0.5 and 1.5
Stages 50 and 200
Phase volume ratio 0.3
What is the fraction of analyte in each stage and the stage number for analytes with the given distribution ratios?
