The Solubility of Nitrogen, Oxygen, and Argon in Water and Seawater
Recent precise data on the solubilities of nitrogen, oxygen and argon in distilled water and seawater are fitted to thermodynamically consistent equations by the method of least squares. The temperature dependence of the Bunsen solubility coefficient is treated using the integrated van't Hoff equation. It is shown that the Setchénow relation gives an adequate representation of the salting-out effect. Equations expressing the solubilities of these gases, as a function of temperature and salinity, in units of the Bunsen coefficient, ml/l., and ml/kg are given along with solubility tables in each of these units.
