Answer: 
Partition coefficient(PC)is an important physicochemical property that is used to predict the diffusion of drugs.A rough guide is: the higher the PC, the better is its lipid solubility. Partition coefficient(PC)=conc.of drug in oil phase/conc.of drug in water phase. Refference-TEXTBOOK OF PHYSICAL PHARMACEUTICS by C.V.S.Subrahmanyam Page no.122
