Properties of Solutions
• 2 Properties of Liquids
• A. Viscosity
• B. Surface Tension
Some Properties of Liquids
• Viscosity is the resistance of a liquid to
• The stronger the intermolecular forces,
the higher the viscosity.
Some Properties of Liquids
Surface Tension
Some Properties of Liquids
Surface Tension
• Surface tension is the amount of energy required to
increase the surface area of a liquid.
• Resistance to increased surface area or the tendency
of a liquid to maintain minimum surface area.
• Cohesive forces bind molecules to each other.
• Adhesive forces bind molecules to a surface.
• Ex. miniscus
Some Properties of Liquids
Surface Tension
• Meniscus is the shape of the liquid surface.
– If adhesive forces are greater than cohesive forces, the liquid
surface is attracted to its container more than the bulk
molecules. Therefore, the meniscus is U-shaped (e.g. water in
– If cohesive forces are greater than adhesive forces, the meniscus
is curved downwards.
• Solvent – what does the dissolving
– The one that is greater quantity
• Solute – what gets dissolved
– can be liquid, solid or gas
– The one that is lesser in quantity
A solution is always
Factors Affecting Solubility
• Temperature
• Pressure
• Solvent-Solvent Interactions
Rule of Thumb
• Polar solutes dissolve in polar solvents.
• Non-polar solutes dissolve in non-polar
• Compounds with metals (Na, K, Li,
etc…) are ionic and therefore polar.
• Concentration
– Molarity (M)
– % Mass, % Volume, %Mass/Vol.
– Mole Fraction
– Molality (m)
– Normality (will be skipped)
Molarity (M)
• Molarity =
moles of solute
Liter of solution
• Moles
Molarity x Liter of soln.
• Moles

Sample Problem
• Calculate the molarity of a solution
containing 3.65 grams of HCl in
enough water to make 500.00 mL of
• Ans:

Molality (m)
• Molality

Mole Fraction (c)
• To Solve for the Mole Fraction of A :
Mole A
Mole A + Mole B
Sample Problem
• 1.00 gram of CH3CH2OH (ethanol) is
mixed with 100.0 grams of water.
Calculate the mole fraction of
ethanol in this solution.
3 Types of % Concentrations
– Percent by Mass
– Percent by Volume
– Percent by Mass-Volume
Percent by Mass
• % Mass = mass of solute
total mass of solution
• Sample Problem:
Find the concentration of 20 grams of sugar
in enough water to make 350 grams of solution.
• Answer: 5.7%
Things to Note:
• Identity of the substance
(molecular formula) is not taken
into account since only the
masses are needed in the
Percent by Volume
• % Volume = volume of solute
x 100
Total Vol. of solution
Sample Problem
• 10.0 mL of benzene is added to 40.0 mL
of carbon tetrachloride. Find the
concentration of the solution.
• Ans: 10 mL / 50 mL) x 100 = 20%
Percent by Mass-Volume
• % Mass-Volume = mass of solute x 100
Total Vol. of Solution
• The density of acetonitrile (CH3CN)is 0.786 g/mL
and the density of methanol (CH3OH) is 0.791
• 1. Calculate the mole fraction of acetonitrile in
the solution.
• 2.What is the molality of acetonitrile in the
• 3. Assuming volumes are additive, what is the
molarity of acetonitrile in the solution.
Usefulness of Molality
• Chemists find that molality (m) is a
useful concept when they must deal with
the effect of a solute on boiling point and
freezing point of a solution.
• A solution is made containing 25.5 g
phenol (C6H5OH) in 495 g ethanol
(CH3CH2OH) Calculate:
• A. mole fraction of phenol
• B. mass % of phenol
• C. molality of phenol
Colligative Properties
• Depend upon the number of particles in
solution rather than the identity of the
• Therefore if solute does not ionize, the
concentration of the solution does not
change and there is no change in the
calculation of the mole fraction (csoln)
Colligative Properties
If solute ionizes, then the number of
particles the solute breaks down into
should be factored in.
• Example: NaCl
» 1 mole
Na+ +
1 mole
Cl1 mole
Colligative Properties
• If solute is Na2SO4
• Then number of particles is 3
• Na2SO4 =
2Na+ + SO42-
Colligative Properties
Boiling Point Elevation
Freezing Point Depression
Osmotic Pressure
Vapor Pressure lowering
Freezing Point Depression
• Presence of solute in solution decreases
the freezing point of solution
DT = kfmsolute
DT = change in Temperature in oC
kf = molal freezing point depression
constant (oC/molal)
m = molality
Effect of Ionizing substances
• The presence of solutes that ionize
have to be factored into the equation
such that if :
DT = kfmsolute ,
Now: DT = ikfmsolute where i = the #
of ions produced.
Boiling Point Elevation
• Non-volatile solute elevates the boiling
point of solvent
• Presence of non-volatile solute decreases
vapor pressure, thus solution has to be
heated to a higher temperature to boil.
Boiling Point Elevation
DT = kbmsolute
DT = change in Temp. (in oC)
kb = molal boiling point
depression constant (oC/molal)
m = molality
Sample Problem
• A solution is prepared by dissolving 4.9 grams
sucrose (C12H22O11 = Mol. Mass: 342.295 g/mol)
in 175 grams of water. Calculate the boiling
point of this solution. Calculate the freezing
point of this solution. Sucrose is a nonelectrolyte. Kb of water is 0.51 oC/molal. Kf of
water is 1.86 oC/molal.
Sample Problem

point of 0.50 m FeCl3 solution. Assume
complete dissociation. Kb of water is 0.51
oC/molal. K of water is 1.86 oC/molal.
Sample Problem
• A solution of an unknown nonvolatile
compound was prepared by dissolving
0.250 g of the substance in 40.0 g of CCl4.

was 0.357 oC higher than that of the pure
solvent. Calculate the molar mass of the
solute. Kb for CCl4 is 5.02. Normal
boiling point of CCl4 is 76.8 oC
Lab Experiment

equation DT = kfmsolute
• Determine molecular mass of sulfur using
the equation
molality (m) =

• Osmosis – direction of flow is from less
concentrated to more concentrated
- shrivelling
• Reverse Osmosis - from more
concentrated to less concentrated
- bloating
Osmotic Pressure p = MRT where
M = Molarity
R = ideal gas constant
(.08206 L-atm/K-mol)
T = Temperature in Kelvin
p = osmotic pressure in atm
Effect of Ionizing substances
• Again the presence of solutes that
ionize has to be considered:
p = MRT ,
Now: p = iMRT
where i = the # of ions produced.
Sample Problem
• A 0.020 grams sample of a nondissociating protein is dissolved in water
to make 25.0 mL of solution. The osmotic
pressure of the solution is 0.56 torr at 25
oC. What is the molar mass of the
Solution Formation
• Energies are involved in solution
formation to:
• A. Break the solute apart (endothermic)
• B. Break the intermolecular forces of the
solvent (endothermic = DH is positive)
• C. Allow solute and solvent molecules to
interact (exothermic = DH is negative)
• Therefore the enthalpy of the solution
DHsolution = DHA + DHB + DHC
• If DHsoln is (+) = means DHC is small
• If DHsoln is (-) = means DHC is large
Factors Affecting Solubility
• A. Structure Effects
– Hydrophilic – loves water
– Hydrophobic – hates water
• B. Pressure Effects – more important for
• C. Temperature effects
• When Raoult’s Law is closely followed
• Very little interaction between molecules
(i.e., bonding between solute and solvent)
• If only LDF were present, Raoult’s Law
closely followed.
Temperature Effect
• Increasing temperature ONLY increases
the RATE of solubility and not solubility
itself. In some cases, higher Temp.
decreases solubility. Experimentation
Raoult’s Law
• States that the partial pressure exerted by
solvent vapor above the solution (PA), equals
the product of the mole fraction of the solvent
in the solution (CA) times the vapor pressure of
the pure solvent (Po)
• PA = (CA)( Po)
• Partial pressure = vapor pressure above soln.
Vapor Pressure
• The total vapor pressure of the solution is the
sum of the partial pressures of each volatile
• Ptot (above soln) = Psolvent(above soln) + Psolute(above soln)
• Partial Pressure of A(solv.) in soln: Psolvent = CsolventPo
• Partial Pressure of B(solute) in soln: Psolute = CsolutePo
Case 1- all volatile components
(Ideal Solution)
• The total vapor pressure over the
solution is the sum of the partial
pressures of each volatile component
• Ptot(above soln) = Psolv. (above soln) + Psolute (above soln)
= (Csolvent in soln)( Po) + (Csolute in soln)( Po)
Case 2 – non-volatile solute
(Non-Ideal Solution)
• Ptot above soln = Psolvent (above soln) + Psolute (above soln)
• Since pure pressure of a non-volatile solute is
ZERO, the equation simplifies to:
Ptot above soln = (CA in soln)( Po)

Henry’s Law
• States that the amount of gas dissolved is
proportional to the amount of gas above
the solution
Pressure Effect

S = Pk
– Where k is the constant characteristic of a
particular solution
– S is the solubility of dissolved gas
