Experimental and theoretical determination of AdairKlotz constants (in torr^{1}) from MWC constants at pH 7.0. K_{R }= 3.0 × 10^{2}torr^{1}, K_{T }= 7.0 × 10^{3 }torr^{1}, and L = 33, as obtained by Yonetani et al. by fitting data with an MWC equation [16]. We used these to compute K_{1 }to K_{4 }using the equations presented in [7] and here compare them to K_{1 }to K_{4 }obtained by Yonetani et al. by fitting the same data with an AdairKlotz equation [16]. Note that Yonetani et al. used a slightly modified version of the AdairKlotz equation, meaning that K_{1 }in [16] corresponds to K_{1 }in [4], K_{2 }in [16] to K_{2 }in [4], K_{3 }in [16] to K_{3 }in [4] and K_{4 }in [16] to 4K_{4 }in [4]. To allow easier comparability, we used Yonetani's notation for this table and labelled the constants , ..., to avoid confusion with the original Klotz notation used everywhere else in this paper.
