Solution

## The correct option is A 7.4 atm K4[Fe(CN)6]→4K++[Fe(CN)6]−4One molecule of K4[Fe(CN)6] dissociates to give 5 ions.Since K4[Fe(CN)6] is 50% dissociated, if we start with 2 molecules of K4[Fe(CN)6], one molecule of K4[Fe(CN)6] will dissociate to provide 5 ions and one molecule of K4[Fe(CN)6] remains undissociated. Thus, from two molecules of K4[Fe(CN)6], we get 6 particles. The Van't Hoff's factor i=actual number of particlesexpected number of particles=62=3The osmotic pressure π=iCRTπ=3×0.1 mol/L×0.08206 Latm/mol/K×300 Kπ=7.4 atmNote: Decimolar means 0.1 mol/L
