Colligative Properties (continued)

LACC Chem 101

  • Properties of a solvent that depend on total concentration of the solute
  • Van’t Hoff factor i is a measure of the degree of dissociation of the solute in a solvent
    • Determined experimentally
    • Mathematically, given n particles and the fraction αthat dissociates
boiling point elevation
Boiling Point Elevation

LACC Chem 101

  • Boiling point increases proportionate to the number of solute particles per mole of solvent particles
  • Normal boiling point is the temperature at which vapor pressure is at 1atm
    • With more solute, temperature must be increased to induce boiling
  • Note: The vapor pressure curve of a dilute solution lies below that of the pure solvent therefore the P is the decrease of vapor pressure at Tb (boiling point).
    • Tb is the change in temperature necessary to hold the vapor pressure at 1 atm (Tb is increase in boiling point caused by addition of solute to pure solvant)
    • Mathematical derivation!!!

At Low Concentrations

For very dilute solutions:


LACC Chem 101

When 5.5 g of biphenyl (C12H10) is dissolved in 100g of benzene, the boiling point increases by 0.903ºC. Calculate Kb for benzene. (Biphenyl M.M. = 154.2 g/mol)


LACC Chem 101

When 0.494g of K3Fe(CN)6 is dissolved in 100.0 g of H2O, the freezing point is found to be -0.093 oC. How many ions are present for each formula unit of K3Fe(CN)6 dissolved?

1. When a 11.2 G sample of sulfur was dissolved in 40.0 gof CS2, the boiling point elevation of CS2 is 2.63ºC. What is the molecular weight of sulfur in the solution? What is the formula of molecular sulfur?

Lanthanum (III) chloride, LaCl3, like many soluble salts, completely dissociates into ions in dilute aqueous solutions.

Suppose 0.2453 g of LaCl3 will dissolve in 10.00 g of H2O, what will be the boiling point of the solution at 1 atm?

freezing point depression
Freezing Point Depression

LACC Chem 101

Freezing point declines relative to molality of the solute

vapor pressure lowering
Vapor Pressure Lowering

LACC Chem 101

  • Similar to mole fraction calc from gas laws
  • Actual vapor pressure of solvent is only fraction of what it would be if a pure liquid
    • This is because of attractions between solvent and solute
  • Leads to Raoult’s Law
raoult s law
Raoult’s Law

LACC Chem 101

  • Works with ideal solutions
  • Conditions
    • Vapor pressure must be nonzero
    • Solute nonvolatile
    • Temperature constant
  • Shows that solute attracts solvent molecules, reducing number of solvents that escape into the vapor phase
osmotic pressure
Osmotic Pressure

LACC Chem 101

Net movement of solvent molecules from less concentrated solution to more concentrated solution

Pressure required to prevent osmosis is known as osmotic pressure

Exact equation (based on chemical potential in solution) yields:

If we assume an ideal solution at low concentration, we can further approximate:



Osmosis is the phenomenon of solvent flow through a

semipermeable membrane to equalize the solute concentration on both sides of the membrane.

Osmotic pressure is a colligative property of a solution equal to the pressure that, when applied to the solution just stops the flow of solute.

1. Solvent flows in and out of the membrane but the solute does not.

2. The volume of the solution inside the membrane increases, stretching the membrane, until equilibrium is reached.

3. The pressure on the solution side of the membrane is greater than atmospheric pressure on the surface of the pure solvent.

4. The different between these two pressures is osmotic

Lecture Questions:

  • 1. At 25ºC, the vapor pressure of C6H6 is 0.1252 atm. When 10.00 g of an unknown volatile substance is dissolved in 100.0 g of benzene, the vapor pressure of the solution, at 25ºC, is 0.1199 atm. Calculate the molar mass of the solute.
  • What is the osmotic pressure at 25º C of an isotonic saline solution that contains 0.900 g NaCl in 100 mL of aqueous solution? Assume i is ideal.
