Affinity of Gas Molecules for Solvent Molecules

A primary force opposing random molecular motion is the affinity of gas molecules for the tissue in question (a second factor in Henry's law that expresses the degree of solubility of that agent in the tissue). If a particular gas has a strong affinity for the molecules of a solvent, its random molecular motion will be impeded by a great number of collisions with the solvent molecules. Therefore, it will require a greater volume of an agent of high affinity (or greater solubility) to enter a tissue to generate the same partial pressure as does an agent of low affinity (or lower solubility).
