nfactor = (TCL°-Lcomplex)/TCM°
This formula uses 4 Variables
Variables Used
Formation Factor for Complexation - Formation Factor for Complexation is the ratio of the total concentration of the ligand bound to the metal ion to the total concentration of the metal ion.
Total Bound Ligand of Complex - (Measured in Mole per Cubic Meter) - Total Bound Ligand of Complex is the concentration of the ligand that is involved in complexation.
Concentration of Unbound Ligand - (Measured in Mole per Cubic Meter) - Concentration of Unbound Ligand is the concentration of the ligands that do not form complex to the metal ion.
Total Metal Concentration of Complex - (Measured in Mole per Cubic Meter) - Total Metal Concentration of complex is the concentration of the metal ion involved in complexation.
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Total Bound Ligand of Complex: 0.15 Mole per Liter --> 150 Mole per Cubic Meter (Check conversion here)
Concentration of Unbound Ligand: 0.025 Mole per Liter --> 25 Mole per Cubic Meter (Check conversion here)
Total Metal Concentration of Complex: 0.09 Mole per Liter --> 90 Mole per Cubic Meter (Check conversion here)
STEP 2: Evaluate Formula
Substituting Input Values in Formula
nfactor = (TCL°-Lcomplex)/TCM° --> (150-25)/90
Evaluating ... ...
nfactor = 1.38888888888889

Second Stability Constant
Second Stability Constant = (Formation Factor for Complexation*(Formation Factor for Second Order-1)*First Stability Constant*Ligand Concentration of the Complex)/(Ligand Concentration of the Complex*Ligand Concentration of the Complex*(2-Formation Factor for Complexation)*First Stability Constant)
Change in Stability Constant
Change in Stability Constant of the Complex = 10^(log10(Stability Constant for Ternary Complex)-(log10(Stability Constant for Binary Complex MA)+log10(Stability Constant for Binary Complex MB)))
Relation between First and Second Stability Constant
Second Stability Constant = 10^((2*pH of Ligand)+log10(Formation Factor for Complexation/((2-Formation Factor for Complexation)*First Stability Constant)))
First Stability Constant
First Stability Constant = 10^(log10(Formation Factor for Complexation/(1-Formation Factor for Complexation))+pH of Ligand)
Stability Constant of Ternary Complexes
Stability Constant for Ternary Complex = (Concentration of Ternary Complex)/(Concentration of Binary Ion*Ligand Concentration of the Complex)
Stability Constant of Binary Complexes
Stability Constant for Binary Complex = (Concentration of Binary Ion)/(Concentration of Metal in Complex*Ligand Concentration of the Complex)
Concentration of Unbound Ligand
Concentration of Unbound Ligand = Total Bound Ligand of Complex-(Formation Factor for Complexation*Total Metal Concentration of Complex)
Formation Factor
Formation Factor for Complexation = (Total Bound Ligand of Complex-Concentration of Unbound Ligand)/Total Metal Concentration of Complex
Total Metal Ligand Concentration
Total Metal Ligand Concentration of Complex = Total Metal Concentration of Complex+Total Bound Ligand of Complex
Ligand Stoichiometry in Complex Equilibrium
Stoichiometric Coefficient of Lewis Base = Maxima of pL Curve/(1-Maxima of pL Curve)
pH of Ligand
pH of Ligand = -log10(Ligand Concentration of the Complex)
Stability Constant of Complex Compound
Stability Constant of Complex = 1/Dissociation Constant of the Complex

## Formation Factor Formula

Formation Factor for Complexation = (Total Bound Ligand of Complex-Concentration of Unbound Ligand)/Total Metal Concentration of Complex
nfactor = (TCL°-Lcomplex)/TCM°

## What is Ionic Strength ?

Ionic strength refers to a measure of the concentration of ions present in a particular solution. Ionic compounds can certainly dissolve in water. On dissolving in water, they dissociate into ions.
