SOLUTION, civil law. Payment.
     2. By this term, is understood, every species of discharge or liberation, which is called satisfaction, and with which the creditor is satisfied. Dig. 46, 3, 54; Code 8, 43, 17; Inst. 3, 30. This term has rather a reference to the substance of the obligation, than to the numeration or counting of the money. Dig. 50, 16, 176. Vide Discharge of a contract.

where Vc and Tc are the critical molar volume and the critical temperature of the solute, respectively, and n is the number of carbon atoms in the solute.
Similar to non-Darcian flow, the solute transport may not follow Fick's law, such as scale-dependent spreading, early arrivals, and long tails, which are often named non-Fickian or anomalous transport.
A complementary approach that can be used is to see how the retention of a solute or group of solutes is altered as a change is made in the structure of a binding agent in an affinity column.
In the vicinity of an edge dislocation, solute normalized hydrogen concentration was reduced to half of its initial value with the aid of hydrogen induced relaxation stress.
In block freeze concentration, a liquid sample is frozen and by means of thawing highly concentrated solutes is obtained, using some assisted techniques to improve the process [13, 14].
Pediasure which has a high renal solute load was added to the regimen at 11 months of age which led to an episode of hypernatremia (serum Na 162 mmol/L).
Insufficient water intake in a diet with high renal solute load and further renal impairment due to enalapril treatment consequently resulted in an acute polyuric renal failure with severe hypernatremic dehydration.
The transport parameters relative to Pe, R and D were obtained using the computational program Disp (Borges Junior & Ferreira, 2006), which fits the transport parameters comparing the experimental values of the solute concentration with those simulated using the solution of the differential equation of transport of solutes in the soil.
It would seem as if the self-association of solvents is the reason for a high activity coefficient of gas solute. Affinity between components cause an opposite effect.
The breakthrough experiments were conducted as an impulse response by spreading a solution of solute, instantaneously and uniformly, as a pulse while maintaining a steady water flow over the surface of the experimental soils in the columns.
