may i know how to calculate the ionic activity of an ion, a+-, given the ionic strength, I, concentration in molarity and mean activity coefficient?From what i understand, it cannot be found without molality (m)

is this formula correct?ionic activity, a+-= activity coefficient multiply with molarity (M)

Are you sure you read what I posted?

There's also this which is the same thing but prettier: https://web.stanford.edu/~cgong/cee3...3Lecture03.pdf

Also what is a+-? Do you mean ?

Okay... so did you not read the first site I posted? Everything is explained there.

i did, and it is stated
ai = γi ci, so just multiply molarity with activity coefficientt?

Well yeah... that's how you calculate activity. It's calculating where you have to consider Ionic strength.

Is this actually a question which has been given to you? What is the precise wording of the entire question as what you've posted does not make much sense as there are a multitude of answers using different models.

the whole question is calculate the ionic strength, mean activity coefficient and the ionic activity of 0.0325M K4Fe(CN)6 at 298K

So have you found any of those yet?

Ionic strength: 0.325
Mean activity coefficient: 0.06907Mean ionic activity: 0.0325 x 0.06907 = 0.00224
Am i right?

Your Ionic Strength is right. Which model did you use to find the activity coefficients?

Debye Huckel limited law?
If you look on this site: http://www.aqion.de/site/101 it shows that Debye-Huckel is only appropriate for I < 10-2.3M.

but the question did not provide me the constant values that can be used for the extended debye huckel limiting rule?

Extended Debye-Huckel is also not valid. You should really use the Davies model.

I would assume it is aqueous then.

may i know is my method of calculating the mean ionic activity is right or wrong?i multiply the activity coefficient with the molarity (0.0325M)
