μ* in Raoult vs μ* in Henry for Chemical Potential
« on: September 15, 2019, 04:34:35 AM »
I am pulling my hair out.
So for Raoult's law:
μi=μ∗i+RTlnxi

For Henry's law:

μB(T,p)=μrefx,B(T,p)+RTlnxB

So my question is, is μ∗i = μrefx,B(T,p) ? Or does one of them mean for when substance is in high concentration (solution) and the other for when substance in low concentration (solute)?

Really appreciate your assistance.
