a. The experimentally determined molar mass is always greater than the true molar mass as it doesn’t account for the dimers formed during this reaction. In this reaction, benzoic acid forms dimers in benzene, therefore the no. of particles reduce which reduces the molar mass of the reaction mixture. Dimers are nothing but, two identical atoms held together.
b. A mixture of ethanol and acetone is a non - ideal solution. It does not obey Rault’s law.
According to Rault’s law,
For any solution the partial vapour pressure of each component is directly proportional to its mole fraction.
Its vapor pressure is high, and therefore it shows a positive deviation from the rault’s law. This deviation occurs due to the very low intermolecular forces of attraction between the solute - solvent molecules, and it is very easy for them to escape to a pure state.
c. This occurs due to osmosis. As we know sugar solution is a hypertonic solution(A hypertonic solution is a solution which has a higher concentration than the surrounding solution concentration). The water from the bacteria cells gets out, and the bacteria loses all its water shrivels and die.

When 1 mol of NaCl is added to 1 litre of water, the boiling point of water increases. On the other hand, addition of 1 mol of methyl alcohol to one litre of water decreases the boiling point of water. Explain why does this happen.Chemistry - Exemplar
Using Raoult’s law explain how the total vapour pressure over the solution is related to the mole fraction of components in the following solutions.
(i) CHCl3 (l) and CH2Cl2(l)
(ii) NaCl(s) and H2O (l)
Note: In the following questions a statement of assertion followed by a statement of reason is given. Choose the correct answer out of the following choices.
Assertion: When methyl alcohol is added to water, the boiling point of water increases.
Reason: When a volatile solute is added to a volatile solvent elevation in boiling point is observed.
A solution is prepared by dissolved 10 g of non-volatile solute in 200 g of water. It has a vapour pressure of 31.84 mm Hg at 308 K. Calculate the molar mass of the solute.
(Vapour pressure of pure water at 308 K = 32 mm Hg).
Components of a binary mixture of two liquids A and B were being separated by distillation. After some time separation of components stopped and composition of vapour phase became same as that of liquid phase. Both the components started coming in the distillate. Explain why this happened.Chemistry - Exemplar
For a binary ideal liquid solution, the variation in total vapour pressure versus composition of solution is given by which of the curves?Chemistry - Exemplar
KH value for Ar(g), CO2(g), HCHO (g) and CH4(g) are 40.39, 1.67, 1.83×10–5 and 0.413 respectively.
Arrange these gases in the order of their increasing solubility.
100 g of liquid A (molar mass 140 g mol–1) was dissolved in 1000 g of liquid B (molar mass 180 g mol–1). The vapour pressure of pure liquid B was found to be 500 torr. Calculate the vapour pressure of pure liquid A and its vapour pressure in the solution if the total vapour pressure of the solution is 475 Torr.NCERT - Chemistry Part-I
