Question

# Molecules of benzoic acid $$(C_6H_5COOH)$$ dimerise in benzene. '$$w$$' g of the acid dissolved in $$30$$g of benzene shows a depression in freezing point equal to $$2$$K. If the percentage association of the acid to form a dimer in the solution is $$80$$, then $$w$$ is:(Given that $$K_f=5$$K kg $$mol^{-1}$$, Molar mass of benzoic acid $$=122$$ g $$mol^{-1}$$)

A
1.8g
B
2.4g
C
1.0g
D
1.5g

Solution

## The correct option is B $$2.4$$g$$\underset{Wg}{2(C_6H_5COOH)}\overset{C_6H_6}{\underset{(30g)}{\longrightarrow}}\underset{\text{diser}}{C_6H_5COOH)_2}$$$$\Delta_fT=i\times k_f\times m$$$$2=0.6\times 5\times \dfrac{w\times 1000}{122\times 30}$$$$(i=1-0.8+0.4=0.6)$$$$w=2.44$$ g.Hence, the correct option is $$B$$Chemistry
