L15 Question: Huckel Limit
My doubt is about the text highlighted in yellow.
What is the significance of treating the particles (hereafter solute) as point charges? Is this to simply say that each individual particle will have an uniform (spherical/radial) electric field generated.
Also, since we are using the DH approximation. To respect what are we computing the Debye screening length
Is this quantity dependent on the concentration of solute we have? Or the concentration of electrolyte the solute is solvated in? It is not too clear what exactly is generating this boundary layer of ions.
I believe it is the solvent, but I am not too sure...
Finally, a typo highlighted in blue
I believe here it should be
R_s\kappa << 1
