Q. 21

<span lang="EN-US

Answer :

o Enthalpy of vapourisation is defined as the heat consumed by a liquid to transform into the gaseous form at a certain pressure and temperature.


o 1 mole of acetone requires less heat than 1 mole of water to vaporize. So, water consumes less heat than the same amount of acetone for vapourisation.


Hence, amongst the two liquids, water has a higher enthalpy of vapourisation (consuming higher heat energy).


Therefore, ∆Hvapourisation (water) > ∆Hvapourisation (acetone).
