An aqueous solution is 1.00 molal in KI. Which change will cause the vapour pressure of the solution to increase?
A
B
C
D

## Explanation

Addition of solute decreases the vapour pressure as some sites of the surface are occupied by solute particles resulting in decreased surface area. However, addition of solvent, i.e., dilution increases the surface area of the liquid surface, thus results in increased vapour pressure. Hence, addition of water to the aqueous solution of (1 molal) KI results in increased vapour pressure.

A solution of sucrose (molar mass = 342 g mol$-$) has been prepared by dissolving 68.5 g of sucrose in 1000 g of water. The freezing point of the solution obtained will be (Kf for water = 1.86 K kg mol$-$1)
A
$-$ 0.372oC
B
$-$ 0.520oC
C
+ 0.372oC
D
$-$ 0.570oC

## Explanation

Depression in freezing point,

$\Delta$Tf = Kf $\times$ m

m = ${{{w_B}} \over {{M_B}}} \times {{1000} \over {{W_A}}}$

= ${{68.5 \times 1000} \over {342 \times 1000}}$

$\Delta$Tf = 1.86 $\times$ ${{68.5} \over {342}}$

= 0.372 oC

$\therefore$ Tf = 0 - 0.372 oC = - 0.372 oC

A 0.0020 m aqueous solution of an ionic compound [Co(NH3)5(NO2)]Cl freezes at $-$ 0.00732oC. Number of moles of ions which 1 mol of ionic compound produces on being dissolved in water will be (Kf = $-$1.86oC/m)
A
3
B
4
C
1
D
2

## Explanation

The number of moles of ions produced by 1 mol of ionic compound = i

Given, m = 0.0020 m

$\Delta$Tf = 0oC – 0.00732oC = – 0.00732oC

Kf = – 1.86 oC

$\Delta$Tf = ikfm

$\Rightarrow$ i = ${{0.00732} \over {1.86 \times 0.0020}}$ = 2

### AIPMT 2007

Concentrated aqueous sulphuric acid is 98% H2SO4 by mass and has a density of 1.80 g mL$-$1. Volume of acid required to make one litre of 0.1 M H2SO4 solution is
A
16.65 mL
B
22.20 mL
C
5.55 mL
D
11.10 mL

## Explanation

Normality = ${{98 \times 1.8 \times 10} \over {49}}$ = 36 N

N2 = 0.1 $\times$ 2 = 0.2 N

N2V2 = N1V1

$\Rightarrow$ 36 $\times$ V = 0.2 $\times$ 1000

$\Rightarrow$ V = ${{0.2 \times 1000} \over {36}}$ = 5.55 mL
