Ans. No, it can have only vapour pressure and not osmotic pressure.

Q.83. Two liquids A and B upon mixing form a warm solution. What type of deviations do they show from Raoult's Law?
Ans. Since energy is released in the form of heat when the two liquids A and B are mixed, they show negative deviation from Raoult's Law.

Q.84. What will happen when red blood corpuscles (RBCs) are placed in 
(a) 1 % NaCI solution 
(b) 0.6% NaCI solution?
Ans. We all know that RBCs are isotonic with 0.9% NaCI solution.
(a) If RBCs are placed in contact with 1 % NaCI solution, then the osmotic pressure of 1 % NaCI will be higher than that RBCs. As a result, water present inside the cell moves into the NaCI solution through cell walls acting as semi-permeable membrane. The RBCs will therefore, shrink.
(b) However, reverse will take place in case these are kept in contact with 0.6% NaCI solution which has less osmotic pressure. Water will now move into the RBCs and they will swell.

Q.85. What should be the maximum concentration of the solute in case a solution is to be ideal?
Ans. It should not be more than 5 % either W/W or W/V.

Q.86. What will the nature of the solid solution formed on mixing two solids with large difference in particle size?
Ans. The solution is known as interstitial solid solution.

Q.87. Which colligative property is generally used for determining the molar mass of a solute?
Ans. Osmotic pressure is generally used for this purpose.

Q.88. What is common in all the four colligative properties?
Ans. All of them depend upon the number of the particles of the solute in the solution as well as its molar concentration.

Q.89. Will osmosis take place when 0.1 M aqueous urea and glucose solutions are separated by semi permeable membrane?
Ans. No, it will not take place as they are isotonic as well as iso-osmotic in nature.

Q.90. The cryoscopic constant (Kf) for water is 1.86 K mol−1kg−1. What does it signify?
Ans. It signifies that when 1 mole of a normal solute is dissolved in one kg of water, the freezing point of water is lowered by 1.86 K.

Q.91. How does osmotic pressure depend upon temperature?
Ans. It increases with the rise in temperature (π = CRT).

Q.92. Which aqueous solution has higher concentration; 1 molar or 1 molal having the same solute?
Ans. In aqueous solution, the density of water is normally taken as one. This means that 1m solution has 1 mole of the solute dissolved in 1000 g or 1000 mL of water. At the same time, 1M solution contains 1 mole of the solute in 1000mL solution which is the volume of both the solute and the solvent present in the solution. This clearly shows that the solvent present in 1M solution is less as compared to 1 m solution. Therefore, 1M solution is more concentrated than 1 m solution.

Q.93. Why is molality of a solution preferred for expressing concentration over molarity?
Ans. In molality, the mass of the solvent is considered while in expressing molarity, volume of solution is taken into account. Since mass does not change with temperature while volume changes, molality does not change with temperature but molarity changes. Hence, molality is better for expressing the concentration of solution than molarity.

Q.94. Will elevation in boiling point temperature be same for 0⋅1 MNaCI and 0⋅1M sucrose solution?
Ans. No it will not be the same because colligative property does not depend upon molar concentration alone but also upon the number of particles (ions) in solution. Sodium chloride (NaCI) is an ionic solid and will form more number of particles (ions)in solution than sucrose (C12H22O11) which is a molecular solid. Thus, the elevation in boiling point for 0.1 M NaCl solution will be more.

Q.95. What is the expected deviation from ideal solution behaviour when acetone and chloroform are mixed to form a solution?
Ans. The molecules of acetone and chloroform will get linked by intermolecular hydrogen bonding. This means that the volume of the solution will be less than for ideal solution. Therefore, ΔV(mix) will be negative and solution will show negative deviation as compared to ideal solution.
