Flory Fox, Kurata-Stockmayer, Berry, Inagaki-Suzuki-Kurata, Stockmayer-Fixman and Ahmad-Baloch methods based on the excluded volume theory have been applied to poly(vinyl chloride)-cyclohexanone system to obtain Kq and the radius of gyration. A discussion on the reliability of these methods is given. The Stockmayer-Fixman and Ahmad-Baloch methods are found to be equally applicable.
