Definition of ionic strength I (SI unit: mol dm-3)

In a solution of fully dissociated electrolytes the ionic strength is defined as I = 0.5[Sigma]iciZi2, in which ci is the concentration and Zi the charge number of ionic species i. [mu] is also defined as Im = 0.5[Sigma]imiZi2, where mi is the molality.
