Lecture Notes 36: 27 April


Colligative properties, cont.

Remember—Colligative properties are properties which depend only on the number or concentration, not on the type, of particles.

Be able to solve problems for:

Liquids & Solids (Chapter 10)

Gases vs. Liquids vs. Solids:

Liquids: The particles of a liquid are in continuous motion, but the distances between collisions are very short compared to those of gases. Thus liquids are largely incompressible - need to increase pressure about a million-fold to halve volume. Diffusion though liquids is much slower than in gases (hours to days vs. seconds to minutes under standard conditions).
