Abstract: A new and elementary synthesis for all simple dissociative equilibria of the form AB<=^A+B, where A and B are present in equal and very dilute concentrations can be developed by use of the Law of Mass Action. Solution of the non-dimensional quadratic equation, R = K/C = X2/C(C-X), for X, over a wide range of K-to-C ratios (preferably by computer), provides values of the degrees of ionization or hydrolysis applicable to all general processes of the schematic type presented above. For visual interpolative reference, a plot of log R versus log [P2/(100-P)]-2 yields a straight line with a slope of unity. Agreement of readily obtainable laboratory data with these theoretical values serves as a ready check on the system under study for approach to "ideal" behaviour.
