Step 1

The true statements are to be determined-

1. a) In the ionic strength range 0-0.1 M, activity coefficients increase with decreasing hydrated radius.
2. b) In the ionic strength range 0-0.1 M, activity coefficients decrease with decreasing hydrated radius.
3. c) In the ionic strength range 0-0.1 M, activity coefficients increase with increasing ionic charge.
4. d) In the ionic strength range 0-0.1 M, activity coefficients decrease with increasing ionic charge.
5. e) In the ionic strength range 0-0.1 Mactivity coefficients increase with increasing ionic strength.
6. f) In the ionic strength range 0-0.1 Mactivity coefficients decrease with increasing ionic strength.
Step 2

Ionic strength is defined as the total ion concentration in the solution.

Activity coefficient is a measure of deviation of solution from the ideal behaviour. And it is calculated using the extended Debye-Hückel equation. help_outlineImage TranscriptioncloseExtended Debye-Hückel equation - 0.51x z X.

Hydrated radius is the radius of the ion plus the water molecules that are bounded to the ion.
