Köhler Theory Analysis (KTA)

Inferring Molar Volumes

Assuming that all solute dissolves, Equation 4 can be written as

                                        (7)

where

                                                                      (8)

The molar volume of the organic component,, is explicitly solved for by rearranging Equation (8) as follows:

                                                                     (9)

where j is used to denote the organic constituent and all other components i, refer to the inorganic components present in the aerosol.  Equation 9 is the essence of KTA.
