A 36.0 mg sample of an organic compound (molar mass = 84.0 g/mol) is dissolved in 10.0 mL of water. This aqueous solution is extracted with 5.0 mL of hexane. Separation and analysis of the aqueous phase shows that it now contains 12.0 mg of the organic compound. Calculate the partition coefficient for the compound between hexane and water (Kphexane/water). Your answer should reflect the proper number of significant figures.
