1. Step 1 lookup compound specific, temperature specific Henry's Constant (beware these can be Caq/Cgas or Cgas/Caq). This is a helpful site. http://www.epa.gov/athens/learn2model/part-two/onsite/esthenry.html

2. Step 2 enter the volume of each compartment.

3. Step 3 enter the total mols added to the system
