Textbook Problem

Benzyl acetate is one of the active components of oil of jasmine. If 0.125 g of the compound is added to 25.0 g of chloroform (CHCl3), the boiling point of the solution is 61.82 °C. What is the molar mass of benzyl acetate?

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: The molar mass of benzyl acetate 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

Change in boiling point is calculated by using the equation,

  ΔTbp=Kbpmsolute

  where,

  Kbp is the molal boiling point elevation constant.

The number of moles of any substance can be determined using the equation

  Numberofmole=GivenmassofthesubstanceMolarmass

Explanation

The molar mass of benzyl acetate is calculated.

Given,

  ΔT=(61.820C61.700C)=0.120C

  Mass of benzyl acetate is 0.125g

  Mass of chloroform is 25g=0.025kg

  Molal boiling point elevation constant of chloroform is 3.630C/m

Change in boiling point is calculated by using the equation,

  ΔTbp=Kbpmsolute

Hence,

The concentration is calculated by,

  Concentration,msolute=ΔTbpKbp=(0.120C)(3.630C/m)=0
