In calculating the molar mass on the "molar mass from depression and elevation" slide, the numerator of the equation has 2.9x10^3 g/M multiplied by 10^3 g/kg.  The 10^3 g/kg is incorrect and should be deleted. The answer of 2.5 x 10^2 g/mol is correct.

My values are completely different from what the professor has. I have 3.9x10^-2, not -4 for my m (molality), which essentially throws off the rest of the calculation. Does anyone else get the same answer? Just wanting to double check, thanks!

What is the difference between "van der Waals alpha factor" and the "van't Hoff factor"? When I Google "van der Waals alpha factor", I can't find anything, but when I Google "van't Hoff factor", I find TONS of pages describing the "alpha factor" you presented in this video.

Colligative Properties, Colloids, Surfactants

  • Colligative properties of solutions – properties depending on number of particles (ions, molecules) dissolved

  • Raoult’s Law of vapor pressure lowering: vp = vpo(mol. frac. solvent)

  • Elevation of b.p. and depression of f.p. similar: DT = K(molality)

  • Use these to determine molar masses of solutes

  • V der W’s alpha: anomalous results due to ionic dissociation

  • Osmosis: flow of solvent across semipermeable membranes; example – red blood cells

  • Osmotic Pressure, PV =nRT where R is usual gas constant

  • Use osmotic pressure to determine molar masses of large molecules like proteins

  • Colloids: particles larger than ions/molecules but not large enough to settle

  • Tyndall effect: colloids scatter light

  • Soaps and surfactants: hydrophilic head and hydrophobic tail
