Description

PUBLIC list: a collection of physical and chemical constants

Value

A list containing:

R

(bar*cm3)/(mol*K) the gas constant (corrected after Lewis1998, in Millero1995: R = 83.131); digits extended after Dickson2007)

F

C/mol the Faraday constant (charge per mol of electrons) (N\_A*e-): Dickson2007

uMolToMol

conversion factor from umol to mol

absZero

absolute zero in degrees centigrade

e

relative dielectric constanf of seawater (Zeebe2001)

K_HNO2

dissociation constant of HNO2: mol/l, NBS pH scale, hybrid constant (Riordan2005)

K_HNO3

dissociation constant of HNO3: assumed on mol/kg-soln and free pH scale, stoichiometric constant (Soetaert pers. comm.)

K_H2SO4

dissociation constant of H2SO4: assumed on mol/kg-soln and free pH scale, stoichiometric constant (Atkins1996)

K_HS

dissociation constant of HHS: assumed on mol/kg-soln and free pH scale, stoichiometric constant (Atkins1996)
