Spanish term or phrase: viene dado por...
In a chemistry text I'm translating the equations are preceded by a standard sentence:

"...la fuerza de dicho ácido viene dada por la constante del equilibrio de disociación..."

How do we render "viene dada por"?
Expressed by? Given by? Shown by?
dez
I'd stick to "is determined by"
Explanation:
in which the constant is what we call a "determining factor".
