Que 11. Acetic acid associates in benzene to form a dimer. 1.65 gm of acetic acid, when dissolved in 100 gm of benzene, raised the B.P. by 0.36 °C. Calculate the Van’t Hoff factor and degree of association of acetic acid.   (Kb for benzene = 2.57 0C/m).
Ans 11.


Que 12. Find van’t Hoff factor of: a). CH3COOH in H2O,       b). CH3COOH in benzene
Ans 12.   a). When acetic acid dissolves in water, it dissociates into CH3​COO and H+ ions and thus the van’t Hoff factor is greater than 1.
b). Acetic acid dimerizes when dissolved in benzene and thus the van’t Hoff factor is less than 1.

Que 13. A 0.1 M solution of potassium sulphate, K2SO4 is dissolved to the extent of 90%. What would be its osmotic pressure at 27 0C?

Que 14. Why is the vapour pressure of a solution of glucose in water lower than that of water?
Ans 14. When glucose is added to water, the surface has both glucose and water molecules, therefore, escaping tendency of water changing into vapours becomes less and vapour pressure of solution becomes less.

Que 19. Give one example each of miscible liquid pairs showing positive and negative deviations from Raoult’s law. Give one reason each for such deviations.
Ans 19. A mixture of ethanol and acetone show a Positive Deviation from Rault’s law.

Explanation: When pure ethanol is added to cyclohexane the molecule of cyclohexane come in between the molecule of ethanol which results in the breaking of hydrogen bond and thus positive deviation.
A mixture of chloroform and acetone shows Negative Deviation.
Explanation: When these are mixed hydrogen bond is formed and negative deviation is shown.

Que 20. a). What is Raoult’s law and what are its applications?
b). Urea forms an ideal solution in water. Determine the vapour pressure of an aqueous solution containing 10% by mass of urea of 40oC. (Vapour pressure of water at 40oC = 55.3 mm of Hg). 
Ans 20. a).  Raoult’s law is applicable only to very dilute solutions and according to this law, the vapour pressure of a component at a given temperature is equal to the mole fraction of that component in the solution multiplied by the vapour pressure of that component in the pure state.
b). Mass of urea = 10g
Mass of water = 90g
Moles of urea = 10g/60g mol-1 = 1/6
Moles of water = 90/18 = 5
Mole fraction of water
XA = 5/5+16 = 5/31
Vapour pressure of solution
P = P°A.XA = 55.3×5/31
P = 53.52mm Hg.

Que 21. a).  Draw graph showing depression of freezing point due to non-volatile solute.
b).   Calculate the freezing point of a solution containing 0.520 g of glucose (C6H12O6) dissolved in 80.20 g of water. [For water Kf = 1.86 K kg mol-1.]
Ans 21. (a). A solution will freeze when its vapour pressure equals the vapour pressure of the pure solid solvent. According to Raoult’s law, when a non-volatile solid is added to the solvent its vapour pressure decreases and now it would become equal to that of solid solvent at a lower temperature. Thus, the freezing point of the solvent decreases. The depression in freezing point depends on the number of solute molecules rather than their nature hence, it is a colligative property.
