At a given pressure, an equilibrium is estabilished in which __.
When the pressure is increased, however, __
- equal numbers of gas partiles enter and leave the solution
- more particles are forced into solution than leave it, so gas solubility increases until a new equilibrium is established
The __ BP and __ FP observed for a solution compared to a pure solvent are examples of __, which depend only on the amount of dissolved solute but not on the solute's chemical identity.
- colligative properties
What are the four colligative properties?
- the vapor pressure of the solution is lower
- the BP of the solution is higher
- the freezing or melting point of the solution is lower
- the solution gives rise to osmosis, the migration of solvent molecuels through a semipermeable membrane
A liquid in a closed container is in equilibrium with __ and that the amount of pressure exerted by the vapor is called the __.
If the solute is nonvolatile and has no appreciable vapor pressure of its own, as occurs when a solid is dissolved, then the vapor pressure of hte solution is always __ then that of the pure solute.
If the solute is voltaile and has a significant vapor pressure of its own, as occurs in a mixture of two liquids, then the vapor pressure of the mixture is __ between the vapor pressures of hte two pure liquids.
True or False:
A solution always evaporates more quickly than a pure solvent does because its vapor pressure is lower and its molecules therefore escape less readily.
- A solution always evaporates more quickly slowly than a pure solvent does because its vapor pressure is lower and its molecules therefore escape less readily
- the vapor pressure of a solution containing a nonvolatile solute is equal to the vapor pressure of hte pure solvent times the mole fraction of the solvent

If an ionic substance such as NaCl is the solute rather than a molecular substance, what must we do?
calculate mole fractions based on the total concentration of solute particles (ions) rather than NaCl formula units
What does Raoult's law only apply to?
ideal solutions; the law works best when solute concentrations are low and when a solute and solvent particles have similar intermolecular forces

solvent molecules are less tightly held in the solution and hte vapor pressure is higher than Raout's law predicts

A physical process such as the vaporization of aliquid to a gas is accompanied by a __.
- free-energy change
- DetaGvap= DeltaHvap - TdeltaSvap
The more negative the value of deltaGvap, the more __
favored the vaporization process
The vaporization of a liquid to a gas is disfavored by __ because energy is required to overcome intermolecular attractions in the liquid. At the same time, however, vaporization is favored by __ because randomness increases when molecules go from a liquid state to a gaseous state.
- enthalpy (positive deltaHvap)
- entropy (positive deltaSvap)
The __ of vaporization for a pure solvent and a solvent in a solution are similar because similar intermolecular forces must be overcome in both cases for solvent molecuels to escape from the liquid.
The __ of vaporization for a pure solvent and a solvent in a solution are not similar, however, Because a solvent in a solutoin has more molecular randomess and higher entropy than a pure solvent does, the entropy change on going from a liquid to vapor is __ for the solvent in a solution than for the pure solvent.
Because a solution of a nonvolatile solute has a lower vapor pressure than a pure solvent has at a given temperature, what must happen to the solution?
must be heated to ahigher temp to cause it to boil
The lower vapor pressure of hte solution means that the liquid/ vapor phase transition line on a __ is always lower for the solution than for the pure solvent.
As a result, the triple-point temperature Tt is __ for the solution, the solid/ liquid phase transition line is shifted to a __ temperature for the solution, and the solution must be cooled to a __ temperature to freeze.
The boiling point elevation of a soltuion relative to that of a pure solvent depends on the concentration of __, just as vapor-pressure lowering does.
The change in BP (deltaTb) for a solution is __. Freezing is similar, except for boiling, substitute freezing

In comparing the __ for a pure solvent and for a solvent in a solution, the values are similar because similar intermolecular forces holding the solvent molecules must be overcome in both cases. In comparing the __ of vaporization, however, the values are not similar. Because the solvent in a soltuion has more molecular randomness than a pure solvent has, the __change betaween solution and vapor is smaller than the __change between pure solvent and vapor.
- entropy x2
If deltaSvap is smaller for the solution, then __ must be correspondingly larger. In other words, the __ of the solution is higher than that of the pure solvent.
In comparing the solvent in a solution with a pure solvent for freezing, the __ are similar because similar intermolecular forces between solvent molecules are involved. The __ are not similar. Because the solvent in a solution has more molecular randomness than a pure solvent has, the entropy change between the solvent in the solution and the solid is larger than the entropy change between pure solvent and the solid. With __ larger for the solution, __ must be correspondibgly smaller, meaning that the freezing point of the solution is __ than that of the pure solvent.
