[Sasview-users] my problem with SLD

Hi Aldona,

I'm not sure I understand your question.  From what I understand you are

1) assuming that the triton and CTAB are perfectly mixed?
2) you are using natural abundance of isotopes (you are not using special
isotopes like C13 etc)

This means that the only thing unknown is the density of your mixutre of
surfactants.  You could try to measure with a densitometer or just assume
that the density is the average.  This last should be a pretty good guess
since the densities are almost the same from what you say (1.1 and 1.07).

if you click on the help button, the first "tip" under "Specifying the
Compound Name" tells you exactly what to do once you have the density.

C19H42BrN+C14H22O(C2H4O)9  for your 1:1 or
2C19H42BrN+C14H22O(C2H4O)9 for your 2:1 etc

As for adding it to the fitting, we currently to not support automatically
inserting the result into any SLD parameter so you would need to copy paste
the number into the appropriate SLD parameter of the model you are using.
for example for the cylindre model that would presumably be sldCyl.

I hope this helps but may have misinterpreted your question
