What is the osmolarity of a solution containing 0.2 M CaCl2 and 50 mM glucose?
A. 25 mOsm/l
B. 700 mOsm/l
C. 250 mOsm/l
D. 650 mOsm/l

Homework Answers

Answer #1

CaCl2 = 0.2 M = 0.2 mol / L

Glucose = 50 mM = 50 x 10-3 M = 50 x 10-3 mol / L

Osmolarity = osmol / L

CaCl2 osmolarity = 0.2 mol /L 3 Osm/ mol ( as the molecule breaks in 3 ions - 1 Ca and 2 Cl)

CaCl2 osmolarity = 0.6 Osm/L = 600 mOsm/L

Glucose Osmolarity = 50 x 10-3 mol/L x 1 Osm/mol ( as glucose is a monovalent compound)

Glucose osmolarity = 50 x 10-3 Osm/L = 50 mOsm/L

Total osmolarity = Osmolarity of Calcium Chloride + Osmolarity of Glucose

Total Osmolarity = 600 + 50 = 650 mOsm/L

The following questions ask students to become familiar with key concepts in osmolarity. 1. A semipermeabile membrane which allows water to flow across but not ions or large molecules such as glucose, separates two solutions. An investigator examines the relationship between changes in osmotic concentration and the osmotic pressure differences across the membrane. First, write out the formula for osmotic pressure, labeling the various parameters and indicating the units that each would have. The investigator sets the osmolarity with glucose...
