What is the difference between the Activity of a Substance J (denoted a sub j) and the Activity Coefficient?

The activity of a substance, denoted as sub j, is the effective equilibrium concentraiton of that substance in a given reaction. The activity coefficient is the ratio of the activity and concentration of the substances in a given reaction.
