Calculation of Hittorf's transfer numbers

The table shows the balance for monovalent ions (charge transport 1 F.).

The transfer numbers can be calculated from the decrease in concentration, and the ionic conductivities can be calculated from the transfer numbers.

The mobility can then be calculated from the ionic conductivities.
