Solution 166 4.0 (1 ratings)  (i) 1 ppm is equivalent to 1 part out of 1 million (106) parts. ( therefore ) Mass percent of 15 ppm chloroform in water ( frac{2}{6} times 10 ) ( =1.5 times 10^{-3} % ) (ii) molality ( (M)= ) no of moles of solute/mass of solvent in ( mathrm{g}^{star} 1000 ) Therefore mass of chloroform= ( 12+ ) ( 1+3(35.5)=119.5 mathrm{g} / mathrm{mol} ) ( 100 mathrm{g} ) of the sample contains ( 1.5 times ) ( 10^{-3} mathrm{g} ) of ( mathrm{CHCl}_{3} ) ( Rightarrow 1000 mathrm{g} ) of the sample contains ( 1.5 times ) ( 10^{-2} mathrm{g} ) of ( mathrm{CHCl}_{3} ) ( m=1.5 times 10^{-3} / 119.5 * 1000=1.25 x ) ( 10^{-4} mathrm{m} ) Quick and Stepwise Solutions Just click and Send OVER 20 LAKH QUESTIONS ANSWERED Download App for Free
