Question

At a certain temperature the vapor pressure of pure chloroform (CHCl3) is measured to be 91. torr. Suppose a solution is prepared by mixing 140. g of chloroform and 67.1 g of heptane (C,H16) of chloroform and 67.1 g of heptane (C7H16 Calculate the partial pressure of chloroform vapor above this solution.

Answer:Explanation:Hello there!

In this case, sine the solution of this problem require the application of the Raoult’s law, assuming heptane is a nonvolatile solute, so we can write:

Thus, we first calculate the mole fraction of chloroform, by using the given masses and molar masses as shown below:

Therefore, the partial pressure of chloroform turns out to be:
