Lesson 13 1 Lesson 13 Colligative properties Consider a solution formed by dissolving a non-volatile solute (such as sugar) in a liquid solvent (such as water). If this solution obeys both Raoult’s and Henry’s laws it is called an ideal solution . We will study the following 4 properties of ideal solutions ( colligative properties ) : – Vapour-pressure lowering – Boiling-point elevation – Freezing-point depression – Osmotic pressure The equations that will be used apply only for dilute solutions , where the assumption of ideality is valid. Lesson 13 Vapour pressure lowering • Raoult’s law for a binary solid/liquid solution: P = P liquid + P solid = P 1 + P 2 = x 1 P vap, 1 + x 2 P vap, 2 • If the solid is non-volatile P vap ,2 = 0: P = x 1 P vap, 1 • Since x 1 < 1 , P < P vap, 1 .This vapour pressure lowering ( D P 1 ) is calculated with the equation: D P 1 = P P vap ,1 = x 1 P vap, 1 P vap, 1 = – (1 – x 1 ) P vap ,1 = – x 2 P vap ,1 Lesson 13 Estimation of molar mass using D P 1 • The vapour pressure depression can be related to the molar mass of the solute with the equation: • This equation can be used to estimate the molar mass of an unknown solid dissolved
