Osmotic pressure

Asked by  | 17th Jan, 2010, 09:27: PM

Expert Answer:

V = nRT

 = 8.20 atm since glucose solution is isotonic with blood

V = 1 litre

n = ?

R = 0.082 l atm K-1 mol-1

T = 37 + 273 = 310 K

substituting the values in the formula

we get

n = 0.322

Mass of glucose = n x Molar mass

                               = 0.322 x 180

                               = 58.06 g
