   The sample equilibrium was established and ensured through repeated shaking and centrifuging of the sample mixture in a stoppered Goetz tube and returned the tube to a constant temperature water bath. The difference between the total amount of  1,1,2,2-Tetrabromoethane which was added and the amount remaining in excess at equilibrium was taken as the amount of solute dissolved in the known volume of water. The determination of the excess amount of solute added has been described elsewhere.1
