The elevation of boiling point of 0.10 M aqueous CrCl3.x NH3 solution is two times that of 0.05 M aqueous CaCl2 solution. The value of x is _____.
[assume 100% ionisation of the complex and CaCl2, coordination number of Cr as 6, and that all NH3 molecules are present inside the coordination sphere)
For 0.05 M CaCl2, i = 3
Effective molarity of CaCl2 = 0.05 × 3 = 0.15
effective molarity of complex = 2 × effective molarity of CaCl2
= 2 × 0.15 = 0.3 M
So the complex is producing 3 ions on dissociation, which is possible only when, the value of x = 5.
