Short Note

Answer the following in one or two sentences.

How is van’t Hoff factor related to degree of ionization?

#### Solution

The van’t Hoff factor is related to degree of ionization as follows:

i = 1 + α (n – 1)

or

α = ("i" - 1)/("n" - 1)

where, α = Degree of ionization/dissociation

i = van’t Hoff factor

n = Moles of ions obtained from ionization of 1 mole of electrolyte.

Is there an error in this question or solution?
