Problem: For a solution of H2SO4, determine the Van't Hoff factor assuminga) 0% ionization. b) 100% ionization. A solution is made by dissolving 0.0350 mol of H 2SO4 into 1.00 L of solution. At 23°C, the osmotic pressure of the solution is 1.22 atm. What is the percent ionization of this acid? 

FREE Expert Solution

The van 't Hoff factor (i) is the ratio between the actual concentration of particles produced when the substance is dissolved and the concentration of a substance as calculated from its mass.
