We study the swelling equilibrium of the non-ionic poly(acrylamide) gel in the six binary mixed solvent systems. All the swelling curves of the gel obtained here are superposed onto a single master-swelling curve if the number of water molecule in a unit volume of the mixed solvent is chosen as a variable. The master-swelling curve of the gel is well described by the theoretical swelling curve of the gel.
