Notes

76) Marti et al. (1997) give partial pressures of H2SO4 over a concentrated solution (e.g., 2.6×10−9 Pa for 54.1 weight-percent at 298 K). Extrapolating this to dilute solutions can only be considered an order-of-magnitude approximation for H.
77) Ayers et al. (1980) give partial pressures of H2SO4 over concentrated solutions at high temperatures. Extrapolating this to dilute solutions can only be considered an order-of-magnitude approximation for H.
78) Gmitro and Vermeulen (1964) give partial pressures of H2SO4 over a concentrated solution (e.g., 10−7 mmHg for 70 weight-percent at 298 K). Extrapolating this to dilute solutions can only be considered an order-of-magnitude approximation for H.
79) Clegg et al. (1998) estimate a Henry's law constant of 5×1011 atm−1 at 303.15 K for the reaction H2SO4(g) ↔ 2 H+(aq) + SO42−(aq) but don't give a definition for it. Probably it is defined as x2(H+)×x(SO42−)/p(H2SO4), where x is the aqueous-phase mixing ratio.
