Osmotic pressure is the minimum pressurewhich needs to be applied to a solution to prevent the inward flow of water across a semipermeable membrane. It is also definedas the measure of the tendency of a solution to take in water by osmosis.
osmotic pressure is proportional to the molarity, C of the solution at a given temperature T. Thus:
Π = C R T
Here Π is the osmotic pressure and R is the
Calculate the mole fraction of benzene in solution containing 30% by mass in carbon tetrachloride.
Let the total mass of the solution be 100g and mass of benzene be 30 g
therefore mass of tetrachloride= (100-30)g = 70g
Molar mass of benzene,
Molarity (M) is defined as number of moles of solute dissolved in one litre (or one cubic decimetre) of solution.
(a) Mol. mass of
Volume of solution = 4.3 L
(b) Number of moles present in 1000 ml of 0.5M H2SO4= 0.5 mol
therefore number of moles present in 30ml of 0.5M H2SO4=mol =0.015mol
therefore molarity =0.015/0.5L
thus molarity is 0.03M
Calculate (a) molality (b) molarity and (c) mole fraction of KI if the density of 20% (mass/mass) aqueous KI is 1.202 g mL-1.
Molality (m) is defined as the number of moles of the solute per kilogram (kg) of the solvent and is expressed as:
