Lesson 9: Variation of Gas/aerosol Partitioning with Temperature


In Lesson 8, we studied the temperature dependence of the deliquescence points of two salts. Here, we investigate the effect of temperature upon the partitioning of volatile compounds between gas, liquid and solid phases.


Before starting, ensure that this browser window occupies only the left half of your screen. You should leave enough space for another browser window where you can enter data into E-AIM and read the results. If your screen is too small for two windows, print out this tutorial and use this window to run the E-AIM model. In these lessons we assume that you will have two browser windows open.

Select this link to open a second browser window containing the data input page for "variable temperature" calculations using Model II (http://www.aim.env.uea.ac.uk/aim/model2/mod2t.php). Arrange the windows on your screen so that both are visible and the left window contains this text.

The Lesson

There is only a single part to this lesson, in which the influence of temperature on the equilibrium state of a system including gas, solid and aqueous phases is examined.
