Problem: Rank the following aqueous solutions in order of increasing(a) osmotic pressure;(I) 0.100 m NaNO3 (II) 0.100 m glucose(III) 0.100 m CaCl2

FREE Expert Solution

We’re being asked to rank the following aqueous solutions in order of increasing 


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
