(c) 9.412
(d) 10.412
Ans. (c)
Solution.
H_{2}SO_{4} is 95% by volume
wt. of H_{2}SO_{4} = 95g
Vol of solution = 100ml
Moles of H_{2}SO_{4} = , and weight of solution = 100 × 1.98 = 198 g
Weight of water = 198  95 = 103 g
= 9.412
Hence molality of H_{2}SO_{4} solution is 9.412

(b) 0.025 M, 0.025 N
(c) 0.25 M, 0.25 N
(d) 0.025 M, 0.0025 N
Ans. (b)
Solution.
Wt. of NaOH dissolved = 0.5 gm
Vol. of NaOH solution = 500 ml
Calculation of molarity
0.5 g of NaOH = 0.5/40 moles of NaOH
[∴ Mol. wt of NaOH = 40]
= 0.0125 moles
Thus 500 ml of the solution contain NaOH = 0.0125 moles
1000 ml of the solution contain
= 0.025 M
Hence molarity of the solution = 0.025 M
Calculation of normality
Since NaOH is monoacidic;
Eq. wt. of NaOH = Mol. wt. of NaOH = 40
0.5 gm of NaOH = 0.5/40 gm equivalents = 0.0125 gm equivalents
Thus 500 ml of the solution contain NaOH = 0.0125 gm equ.
1000 ml of the solution contain
Hence normality of the solution = 0.025 N
Example 10. Calculate the molality and mole fraction of the solute in aqueous solution containing 3.0 gm of urea per 250 gm of water (Mol. wt. of urea = 60).

(b) 0.4 m, 0.00357
(c) 0.5 m, 0.00357
(d) 0.7m, 0.00357
Ans. (a)
Solution.
Wt. of solute (urea) dissolved = 3.0 gm
Wt. of the solvent (water) = 250 gm
Mol. wt. of the solute = 60
3.0 gm of the solute = 3.0/60 moles = 0.05 moles
Thus 250 gm of the solvent contain = 0.05 moles of solute
1000 gm of the solvent contain
= 0.2 moles
Hence molality of the solution = 0.2 m
In short,
Molality = No. of moles of solute/1000 g of solvent
= 0.2 m
Calculation of mole fraction
3.0 gm of solute = 3/60 moles = 0.05 moles
250 gm of water = 250/18 moles = 13.94 moles
Mole fraction of the solute
= 0.00357

(c) 0.3, 0.19, 0.50
(d) 0.50, 0.19, 0.3
Ans. (d)
Solution.
Since 18 g of water = 1 mole
25 g of water = 25/18 = 1.38 mole
Similarly, 46 g of ethanol = 1 mole
25 g of ethanol = 25/46 = 0.55 moles
Again, 60 g of acetic acid = 1 mole
50 g of acetic acid = 50/60 = 0.83 mole
Mole fraction of water
= 0.50
Similarly, Mole fraction of ethanol
= 0.19

Ans. (a)
Solution.
Molarity of the mixture can be calculated as.
M_{1}V_{1 }+ M_{2}V_{2} = M_{R}(V_{1 }+ V_{2})
where, M_{R }= resultant solution
(V_{1} × x) × (V_{2} × y) = M_{1}(V_{1 }+ V_{2})
(V_{2} × x) × (V_{1} × y) = M_{2}(V_{1 }+ V_{2})
Dividing equation (i) by equation (ii), we get
Substituting we can calculate x : y.

(d) 3.16 kg
Ans. (a)
Solution.
One litre of 0.50 N NaOH contains = 0.50 × 40g = 20 g = 0.020 kg
60 litres of 0.50 N NaOH contain
= 0.020 × 60 kg = 1.20 kg NaOH
Since the given NaOH contains 12% water, the amount of pure NaOH in 100 kg of the given NaOH = 100  12 = 88 kg
Thus 88 kg of pure NaOH is present in 100 kg wet NaOH
1.20 kg of pure NaOH is present in

(a) 7.47 atm
(b) 7.30 atm
(c) 7.29 atm
(d) 7.40 atm
Ans. (a)
Solution.
Since for calculating osmotic pressure we require millimoles/litre therefore
Na^{+}= 138 Ca^{2+ }= 5.2/2 = 2.6, K^{ }= 4.5,
Mg^{2+ }= 2.0/2 = 1.0 , Cl¯ = 105,
HCO_{3}¯ = 24,PO_{4}^{3}^{}= 2.2/3 = 0.73,
SO_{4}^{2}^{}= 0.5/2 = 0.25 , Proteins = 16,
others = 1.0
Total = 294.18 millimoles/litre = 294.18/1000
= 0.294 moles/litre
Now since p = CST
= 0.294 × 0.0821 × .310 = 7.47 atm

Wt. of solvent, W = 22.5 g
Mol. wt of solute, m = 60
Molal elevation constant K_{b} = ?
Boiling point elevation, DT_{b} = 0.170^{0}C
Substituting these values in the equation
=
= 0.51^{0}C
Example 61. Calculate the boiling point of a solution containing 0.45g of camphor (mol. wt. 152) dissolved in 35.4g of acetone (b.p. 56.3^{0}C); K_{b} per 100 gm of acetone is 17.2^{0}C.
(a) 56.446°C
(b) 52.401°C
(c) 56.146°C
(d) 50.464°C
Ans. (a)
Solution.
Here it is given that
w = 0.45 g, W = 35.4, m = 152,
Kb = 17.2 per 100gm
Now we know that ΔT_{b}
(Note that this is expression when K_{b} is given per 100g of the solvent)
Substituting the values in the above expression.
= 0.146^{0}C
Now we know that
B.P. of solution (T)  B.P. of solvent (T_{0}) = DT
B.P. of solution (T) = B.P. of solvent(T_{0}) DT
Hence B.P. of solution = 56.3 0.146
= 56.446^{0}C

(a) 97.5
(b) 90.75
(c) 105.5
(d) 85.75
Ans. (a)
Solution.
ΔT_{f} = freezing point of water freezing point of solution = 0º C  (1.1º C) = 1.1º
We know that,
ΔT_{f} = i × K_{f} × m
1.1 = i × 1.86 × 0.2
But we know
i = 1 (n  1) a
2.95 = 1 (3  1) a = 1 2a
a = 0.975
Van't Haff factor (i) = 2.95
Degree of dissociation = 0.975
Percentage degree of dissociation = 97.5
