An ideal solution with solute density 1.05 and solvent density 1.00 is subject to a huge gravity force field, a linear function of postition, F=kr, k is a constant and r is the position along the field. Derive the concentration as a function of T and position r along the field. (Hints: express gravitational potential as function of r, Gibbs free energy should be a function of this grav. potential and solute conc. at position r.)

Solution Summary

The answer is given a briefly explained. The concentration of an ideal solution for huge gravity force fields are given.

Solution Preview

Force is the negative 1st derivative of potential, so the gravitational potential must be U = -k r^2.
The Gibbs energy must then be
G = mu1*+RT ln X1 ...
