Textbook Problem

Calculate the osmotic pressure of a 0.0120 M solution of NaCl in water at 0 °C. Assume the van’t Hoff factor, i, is 1.94 for this solution.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: The osmotic pressure of the solution has to be determined.

Concept introduction:

Colligative properties: Properties of solutions which having influence on the concentration of the solute in it. Colligative properties are,

  • Decrease in the vapor pressure
  • Increase in the boiling point
  • Decline in the freezing point
  • Osmotic pressure

Osmotic pressure is calculated by using the equation,

  π=icRT

  where,

  c is the molar concentration

  i is the van’t Hoff factor

Explanation

Given,

  R=0.08206L.atm K1mol1T=00C=(0+273.15)K=273.15Ki=1.94

  Molality of the solution is 0.0120M

Therefore,

The osmotic pressure of the solution is,

  π=icRT=(1
