Osmotic Pressure

How would you prepare 1.0 L of an aqueous solution of sodium chloride having an osmotic pressure of 25 atm at 17°C?

Solution Preview

Osmotic pressure (in atm) = molarity * R * temperature
R = 0.0821 liter-atm/mole kelvin ...

Solution Summary

The solution involves a calculation of molarity using the Van't hoff equation given osmotic pressure, temperature and the ideal gas constant.
