t+ = μ+/(μ++μ-)
This formula uses 3 Variables
Variables Used
Transport Number of Cation - The Transport Number of Cation is ratio of current carried by cation to total current.
Ionic Mobility of Cation - (Measured in Square Meter per Volt per Second) - The Ionic Mobility of Cation is described as the speed achieved by an cation moving through a gas under a unit electric field.
Ionic Mobility of Anion - (Measured in Square Meter per Volt per Second) - The Ionic Mobility of Anion is described as the speed achieved by an anion moving through a gas under a unit electric field.
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Ionic Mobility of Cation: 40 Square Meter per Volt per Second --> 40 Square Meter per Volt per Second No Conversion Required
Ionic Mobility of Anion: 60 Square Meter per Volt per Second --> 60 Square Meter per Volt per Second No Conversion Required
STEP 2: Evaluate Formula
Substituting Input Values in Formula
t+ = μ+/(μ+-) --> 40/(40+60)
Evaluating ... ...
t+ = 0.4
STEP 3: Convert Result to Output's Unit
0.4 --> No Conversion Required
0.4 <-- Transport Number of Cation

## What is Transport Number?

The fraction of the total current carried by an ion is known as transport number, transference number or Hittorf number may be denoted by sets symbols like t+ and t– or tc and ta or nc and na.
Transport number can be determined by Hittorf's method, moving boundary method, emf method and from ionic mobility.
