The existing data on the vapour pressures, densities and e.m.f.s of concentration cells of dilute and concentrated aqueous solutions of strong electrolytes have been interpreted in terms of hydration and incomplete dissociation. Hydration numbers and degrees of dissociation have been presented for several 1 : 1 strong electrolytes at 25 °C. Thus the actual ionic concentrations of strong acids, bases and salts, hitherto inaccessible, have now been made available.
