“For example, a profile of the fugacity (partial pressure corrected for the fact that the gas is not ideal) of CO2 (f CO2) shows that Pacific-origin waters below 50 m in Canada Basin are oversaturated due to their origin in the productive Bering/Chukchi Seas (see Fig. 9.34).”
“Profiles of the fugacity (partial pressure corrected for the fact that the gas is not ideal) of CO2 in Canada Basin and the Eurasian Basin.”
“Estimating pesticide environmental risk scores with land use data and fugacity equilibrium models in Misiones, Argentina [An article from: Agriculture, Ecosystems and Environment] by J. Ares”
“The concentration of dissolved CO2 and the fugacity of gaseous CO2, fCO2, then obey the equation [CO2] = K0 × fCO2.”
“The fugacity is practically equal to the partial pressure, pCO2 (within ~1%).”
“Finally, the fugacity is calculated from the mixing ratio. pH is usually measured using a glass/reference electrode cell or spectrophotometrically using an indicator dye.”
“To further muddy the waters introduce the idea of gas fugacity – given constant P and T, greenschist assemblages can be amphibolite simply by increasing O2 fugacity.”
“A fugue may be at its best when it has all the virtues of fugacity; but law is not best when it excels in legality; law must also be just.”
“Emerson, differing from the tradition of Swedenbor - gian “correspondences” on which he drew, insists on the “accidency and fugacity” of the symbol.”
“It is so serviceable a pigment for so many purposes, especially in admixture, that its sin of fugacity is overlooked.”
