Molar mass of solute (benzoic acid) = 122g mol-1
Mass of solute = 3.9g
Mass of solvent(benzene) = 49g
Since the value of ‘i’ <1, we can say that association occurs in these molecules. In general carboxylic acids dimerise through hydrogen bonding, hence the value of ‘i’ exactly half the ideal value.
