2g benzoic acid dissolved in 25g of benzene shows a depression in freezing point equal to 1.62K. Molal depression constant for benzene is 4.9KKg/mol.what is the percentage association of acid if it forms dimer in solution?

Expert Answer:

WB=2g, K=4.9K kg mol



if 'x' is degree of association then we would have (1-x) mol of Benzoic acid left undissociated and corresponding x/2 as associated moles of Benzoic acid at equilibrium. Therefore, total number of moles of particles at equilibrium is

Therefore degree of association of Benzoic acid is Benzene is 99.2 %
