This will perform a full speciation calculation in the presence of suspended solids. You determine the nature of the suspended solids by selecting:
•Total Solids e.g 0.001 g/L
•Sand surface area
% swelling, non-swelling
•Metals in solution that may
Molarity of charge 1,2,3 ions
When the calculate button is pressed you will see a tabbed output. The tabs and their content are:
•Rxns: these are the graphical depiction of the microconstants and their calculated micro pKa's.
•Macros: these are the macroscopic pKa's and the species involved in the reaction.
•Plot and Species: this is a plot of the relative concentration of the species as a function of pH.
•Data Table: this is a table of numerical concentration as a function of pH and the overall molecular charge as a function of pH.
Species labeled "mineral" are species bound to the suspended soil.
