Need help on 2 chemistry questions.

Recommended Posts

I cannot do these questions. Could someone please explain?


Q1) If you have a solution of 1L of H2O and 234g of NaCl, what is the osmotic pressure at STP (R-0.1 l*atm/mol*K)?

a)89.54 atm b)109.2atm c)119.2atm d)218.4atm e)234.0atm



Q2) What volume of HCl was added if 20 mL of 1M NaOH is titrated with 1M HCL to produce a pH=2?


Thank you guys in advance.

Osmotic pressure=MRT, where M is molarity, R is constant, T is temp in K


There's 4 moles of NaCl, but NaCl dissociates in water so there's actually 8 moles of particles. R is given as 0.1, and T is 298 since it's STP





pH=2, so the concentration of H+ is 0.01.

It says 20mL of 1M NaOH, which is 0.02 moles of OH.


Therefore you needed to add 0.03 moles of H+ which is 30mL of HCl.
