Answer: van’t Hoff factor (i) = 1
The Van’t Hoff factor(i) can be defined as the ratio of the concentration of particles formed when a substance is dissolved to the concentration of the substance by mass.
- The ideal Solutions are those which obey Raoult’s Law at all concentrations and temperatures.
- The van’t Hoff factor (i) is the number of particles formed in a solution from one formula unit of solute.
- For most non-electrolytes dissolved in water, the van ‘t Hoff factor is essentially 1.
- Since it is an ideal solution the solute neither dissociates nor associates and i = 1.0
