Because of their anomalous behavior solutions of strong electrolytes have long occupied the attention of numerous investigators. Many attempts have been made to provide a theoretical explanation of the abnormalities. Of the various solution properties the free energies of dilution and the activities of the ions have been especially studied. From calculations based on the assumption that a common ion at any given concentration has the same mobility regardless of the associated ion Lewis has concluded that the chlorides, bromides and iodides of hydrogen and of the alkali halides are equally dissociated in 0.10 M solutions.
