Figure 9: Fraction of dissociated colloidal particles as a function of the total colloid concentration, in adimensional units, for two values of the solvent quality ( ). The parameters used in the simulation are the same as in the Figure 8 (nonelectrostatic case). The lines are only guides for the eye. The colored lines indicate the total energy of the system, normalized by the particle number, in each case. See text for details.
