Re:



Dr. Parkhurs,

Thank you very much for your prompt response. For exchange species activity is 
equivalent fractioons which is explained in page 12 of manual.

{activity} = Gama*be*ne/Te

However, I could not understand it. I think it is not just matter of  mol/L 
and mol/kg.

The reason is I tried to simulate and could get the matching output with 
significantly different Log K values.


With Regards,

Tirtha
