Step 1

Given information:

Mass of polypeptide = 2.63 g

Volume of water = 101 mL

Osmotic pressure = 0.125 atm

Temperature = 37.0 ℃

Step 2

Osmotic pressure (п) can be expressed in terms of concentration (C),gas constant (R), and temperature (T). The mathematical expression for osmotic pressure is represented as follows:
