As you know 100 ml of H2O mixed with 100 ml ethanol is not 200 ml
What is the official name of this 'volume loss'?
Is it possible, and if so, how, to calculate, before mixing, what the density of a mixture of (polar) fluids will be? Temperature can be ignored.
Is there a fitted function to estimate this?
Edit. Since the volume loss depends on the reagents, we narrow it down to two components which do not have a chemical reaction between themselves. H2O and Ethanol. What happens with 199 ml H2O and 1 ml Ethanol. Or 100 ml and 100 ml, or 50 ml and 150 ml?
