Question

# The vapour pressure of water at room temperature is 23.8 mm Hg. The vapour pressure of an aqueous solution of sucrose with mole fraction 0.1 is equal to :

A
23.9 mm Hg
B
24.2 mm Hg
C
21.42 mm Hg
D
31.44 mm Hg

Solution

## The correct option is C $$21.42$$ mm Hg$$P_o$$ (Vapour pressure of water) = 23.8 $$mm Hg$$$$P_s$$ (Vapour pressure of sucrose) = ?on solving as attached in the image we get $$P_s$$ (Vapour pressure of sucrose) = 21.42 $$mm Hg$$$$\dfrac{P_o-P_s}{P_o}=0.1$$ (mole fraction)$$\dfrac{23.8-P_s}{23.8}=0.1$$$$23.8-P_s=2.38$$ or $$P_s=21.42$$ mm of HgChemistry
