   The equilibrium between a known volume of tetrachloromethane gas and KOH solution was established in an container under continuous shaking. The volume of tetrachloromethane not dissolved in the KOH solution was measured and the amount of dissolved gas was  determined at the same time and conditions. A single measurement was done at each temperature.
