Find the molality of a solution in which the benzene (C6H6) to toluene (C7H8) molar ratio is exactly 4:1.


Expert Answer

Step 1

The molality of a solution is to be determined in which the benzene (C6H6) to toluene (C7H8) molar ratio is exactly 4:1.

Step 2

The molality of a solution is defined as the moles of solute per kg of solvent.

Step 3

Now, the molar ratio of benzene to toluene is 4:1.

Thus, assume the moles of benzene to be 4 moles and moles of toluene to be 1 mole.
