Osmotic pressure

  1. Nov 14, 2009 #1
    when calculating the osmotic pressure of a solution with 0.03M ammonium sulfate and 0.04M sucrose...do i need to add the concentration for sucrose?

    2 ions of ammonium
    1 ion of sulphate

    3 x 0.03M = 0.09M

    do i need to add the 0.04M ?

    I'm no expert but I think you should add it. As it is not ionized you can just add it. I might be wrong!!
