## Henry's law

https://doi.org/10.1351/goldbook.H02783
The @P04420@ (fugacity) of a solute (B) in a solution is directly proportional to the rational chemical activity ($$a_{x}$$) of the solute; this relationship is called @H02782@'s law: $p_{\text{B}}=\frac{a_{x,\text{B}}}{\alpha _{x,\text{B}}^{\infty }}$ where $$\alpha _{x,\text{B}}^{\infty }$$ is the rational @S05740@ @C01124@ for infinite dilution, i.e. for pure solvent. For the solvent (A) the relationship is called @R05135@, and the proportionality factor is the fugacity of the pure solvent, $$\overset{˜}{p}_{\text{A}}^{\ast }$$: $p_{\text{A}}=\overset{˜}{p}_{\text{A}}^{\ast }\ a_{\text{A}}$
