15 Κ and 100,000 Pa. 2:3 37 Activities high concentrations*, and it is usually adequate to approximate a{ by one: 2:3:2 a- « 1 (i = solvent) Similarly, the standard state for a species in a solid phase is the pure solid. In electrochemistry the solids we encounter are mostly pure elements or compounds and, accordingly, their activities are accurately equal to unity: 2:3:3 a{ = 1 (i = pure solid) Thus, the activity of Ag in a piece of pure silver metal is one. In a silvergold alloy, however, aAg is less than one.

Evidently the law is obeyed well in the vicinity of (ζ+ζ_) μ = 3 1 mol m ~ and is often a useful approximation at higher ionic strengths. 2:6 Solutions of high ionic strength The interionic distances in solutions of high ionic strength are small and this accentuates the effects discussed in the last section. Activity coefficients are less predictable and must usually be measured, rather than calculated. Over the years since the work of Debye and Hiickel, there have been many attempts to elaborate their model in the search for methods of predicting activities at high ionic strengths.
