Solution Summary

This solution involves the calculation of osmotic pressure and molar mass using the Van't Hoff equation.

Solution Preview

According to Van't Hoff equation, osmotic pressure is given by,

P = c*R*T

Where, c is the molar concentration of the solution, R is the gas constant and T is the temperature.

c = n/V = w/M*V (where n is the number of ...
