Define vapour pressure of a liquid. What happens to the vapour pressure when (a) a volatile solute dissolves in the liquid and (b) the dissolved solute is non-volatile?

Every pure liquid exerts a vapour pressure in the space above it. This is the vapour pressure of the solvent over it at that particular temperature. It depends upon the nature of the solvent and the temperature.
(a) If a volatile solute is dissolved, vapour pressure of the solvent is increased.
(b) However, if a non-volatile solute is dissolved in it, the vapour pressure of the solution is lowered. This is because, in a solution, the percentage of the volatile solvent molecules, which only contributes towards vapour pressure is diminished.



Fig. Decrease of vapour pressure when a non-volatile solute is added to the solvent.
Since, the solute molecules are non-volatile and show no measurable tendency to escape from the solution as vapour, consequently, the vapour pressure of a solution is always lower than that of its solvent.
Raoult’s gave a relation between the relative lowering of vapour pressure and the mole fraction of the solute. Mathematically:
po-ppo = nn+N =m/wmw+MW

(mole fraction of the solute)
Using the above equation, we can determine the molecular weight of the solute, when the lowering in v.p. is known, when a known weight of the solute w, dissolved in a known wt. of the solvent W.p0 is the vapour pressure of the pure solvent and m and M are the molecular weights of solute and solvent respectively.

Calculate the mass of urea (NH2CONH2) required in making 2.5 kg 0.25 of molal aqueous solution.

Solution:

Molality (m) is defined as the number of moles of the solute per kilogram (kg) of the solvent and is expressed as:

= Moles of soluteMass of solvent in kg
 
Mol. mass of urea NH2CONH2
                 = 14 + 2 + 12 + 16 + 14 + 2
                 = 60 g mol-1

Molality (m) = Moles of soluteMass of solvent in kg

25 = Moles of solute2.5

or Moles of solute
                = 0.25 x 0.25 =  0.625

  Mass of urea
                   = Moles of solute x Molar mass

                   = 0.625 x 60 = 37.5 g

Calculate the molarity of each of the following solution (a) 30 g of Co(NO3)2.6H2O in 4.3 L solution (b) 30 mL of 0.5 MH2SO4 diluted to 500 mL.

solution;

Molarity (M) is defined as number of moles of solute dissolved in one litre (or one cubic decimetre) of solution.


(a) Mol. mass of Co(NO3). 6H2O

               =58.9+(14+3×16)2+6(18)=58.9+(14+48)×2+108=58.9+124+108 = 290.9

Moles of Co(NO)3.6H2O
                                       =30290.9=0.103 mol.
Volume of solution = 4.3 L
Molarity, 
          M=Moles of soluteVolume of solution in litre    = 1034.3 = 0.024 M

(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=0.5×301000mol =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.


(a) 20% (mass/mass) means that 20 g of KI is present in 80 g of water.

Therefore, Moles of KI in solution
 



moles of KI = 20/166 =0.12mol
moles of water =80/18 =4.44mol
therefore, mole fraction of KI
 
=moles of  KImoles of KI + moles of water

=0.120.12+4.44= 0.0263

Calculate the mass percentage of benzene (C6H6) and carbon tetrachloride (CCl4) if 22 g of benzene is dissolved in 122 g of carbon tetrachloride.

Mass % of benzene
                      = mass of benzenemass of solution ×100= 2222+122×100= 22144×100 = 15.28%
Mass% of carbon tetrachloride = 100 - 15.28
                          = 84.72%

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,
