For a given species, it is a function of temperature only and is practically independent of pressure for pressures under about 5 atm. Values of the Henry's constant for a number of aqueous solutions are given in Table 162 for various temperatures. From this table and the equation above we make the following observations: 1. The concentration of a gas dissolved in a liquid is inversely proportional to Henry's constant. Therefore, the larger the Henry's constant, the smaller the concentration o...
