0-mg sample of an organic compound (MW = 84g/mol) is dissolved in 10.0-mL of water. This aqueous solution is extracted with 5.0mL of hexane.

A 36.0-mg sample of an organic compound (MW = 84g/mol) is dissolved in 10.0-mL of water. This aqueous solution is extracted with 5.0mL of hexane. Separation and analysis of the aqueous phase shows that it now contains 12.0mg of the organic compound. What is the partition coefficient (Kp hexane/water) for the compound?
