We’re being asked to determine the solution with the highest osmotic pressure.


The osmotic pressure (Π) of a solution is related to the molarity of the solution:


Π=iMRT


where:

i = van’t Hoff factor

M = molarity of the solution (in M or mol/L)

R = gas constant (0.08206 atm • L/mol • K)

T = temperature
