Colligative Properties

  1. Lecture Problem: How much CO2 (grams) will dissolve in 2 L of water when PCO2 = 4 atm and the temperature is 25 oC. kH = 4.48 x 10-5 M mmHg-1.

  2. Lecture Problem: Mix 100 g of water (vapor pressure 23.756 torr) with 500 g methanol, CH3OH (vapor pressure 15.68 torr). Calculate Pwater, PMethanol, Ptotal.

  3. Lecture Problem: Add 20.00 g fructose (C6H12O6) to 500 mL H2O. What is the freezing point? What is the boiling point?

  4. Lecture Problem: Add 20.00 g NaCl to 500 mL H2O. What is the freezing point? What is the boiling point?

  5. Lecture Problem: What pressure is required to purify seawater using reverse osmosis? Assume that the initial concentration of NaCl is approximately 0.5 mole liter-1 and that it must be purified to 1x10-4 mole liter-1.
