Unformatted text preview: b) Since osmotic pressure in an entropic effect, it is more pronounced at higher T. 2. Why are deviations from ideal behavior more of an issue in electrolyte solutions than non-electrolyte solutions? (2 pts) Electrolytes are charged, meaning there are additional electrostatic interactions (even at larger distances than VanderWaal interactions). This leads to a lower effective concentration of free ions because of the formation of ion pairs, etc....
