Experiment 2: Partial Molal Volume

Abstract

## Densities of a small range of concentrations of aqueous potassium chloride and

aqueous sodium chloride were recorded with a density meter so that the partial molal

volumes, and ultimately, the partial molal volumes at infinite dilution, could be

calculated. For potassium chloride and sodium chloride, the partial molal volumes at

infinite dilution of the salts were calculated to be 25.18 mL/mol and 15.19 mL/mol,

respectively. These differ from literature values by 6.23% and 26.85%, respectively.

Error sources include inadequate mixing of the solutions, evaporation and the small range

of the solutions.

Introduction:

Amagat’s law states that volumes are approximately additive. However, this does

not apply to solutions whose concentrations are to be known to a high degree of accuracy.

## Preparation of a solution with accurate molality is generally done by adding an amount of

water to a measured amount of salt and obtaining the weight of water by difference. In

1770 Millero reported that volume decreases when salts are added to a specific volume of

water. This effect was explained as electrostriction: the volume contracts due to

interaction of the polar solvent around the ions. However, this phenomenon occurs in

## non-ionic solutions well, reflecting differences in intermolecular forces. Thermodynamics

explains this deviation from ideal behavior through partial molal quantities. The most

The partial molal volume considers the change in molal volume with the increase in

moles of material:

Since partial molal volumes are functions of concentration but not the total number of

## moles, equation 4 can be expressed as:

where V is total volume. Taking component 1 to be water and component 2 to be the salt,

the volume of solution can be determined with static amounts of solvent (water) and

varying amounts of salt. Since molality is the concentration of solute per kg of solvent, it

is intuitive to take the amount of water fixed at 1000 g. With the molality of the solution

and the molecular weight of the salt used and the measured density of the solution, the

## volume can be calculated:

The graph of experimental data for volume as a function of molality can be fit with a

power series, yielding a fit equation whose derivative with respect to molality yields the

## (1000g/18.015g/mol), n2 = m, and rearranging, the partial molal volume of solvent can be

expressed as:

Since both partial molal volumes are functions of concentration, they can be expressed at

infinite dilution for a single value. At infinite dilution for the partial molal volume of

water, the effects of solvated ions on the solvent are null. The partial molal volume of salt

at infinite dilution reflects the effects of electrostriction on water due to the solvated ions.

The values of partial molal volumes at infinite dilution depend on the equation used to fit

the data and how well is extrapolates to m = 0. Thus, it is imperative that density be

## measured accurately because slight deviations can result in poor results.

Procedure:

Five solutions of KCl with varying molalities between 0.05 m and 2.00 m were

prepared by weighing salt by difference in a jar with lid. 20 mL of distilled water was

added to the jar and the mass was recorded. This was used to calculate the molality of the
solution. The DMA 4500 was turned on and its temperature was adjusted to 25.00°.

Distilled Water was injected and then the air line was reconnected and the pump was

turned on. The density was then taken. Once the density read that of air (between 0.0011-

0.0014 g/mL), a syringe of distilled water was put into the injection port and distilled

water was injected. The density for water was recorded at least 3 times for different

portions until consistency (within 0.0001g/mL). Then the syringe was rinsed twice with

small portions of the KCl solution and was then filled with the solution. The solution was

injected partially and density was recorded. This was repeated until 3 consistent values of

density were reported for the solution, again using different portions. The syringe was

rinsed with another solution of KCl and the density was measured as before. This was

repeated for the remaining KCl solutions. Then the entire procedure was repeated using

## Analysis and Results

Weights, molalities, and densities for water, sodium chloride and potassium

chloride were recorded in Table 1. It must be noted that instead of using 0.5 to 2.0 molal

solutions as the procedure indicated, 0.01 to 0.5 molal solutions for sodium chloride and

0.06 to 0.5 molal solutions for potassium chloride were used. With the data obtained,

Figure 1, which shows the relationship between density and molality for each salt, was

produced. The graphs indicate a quadratic relationship between density and molality; as

molality increases, density increases as well. R-squared values of 0.99872 for sodium

chloride and 0.99346 for potassium chloride indicate that the data obtained is precise.

## Table 2 contains the calculated volume as a function of molality, V{m}, partial

molal volume of water, V1, the partial molal volume of the salts, V2, and the apparent
partial molal volume, φ. The volume as a function of molality was calculated using

equation 6, the partial molal volume of water using equation 8, the partial molal volume

of the salts using equation 7 and the apparent molal volume using equation 11. It is to be

noted that the partial molal volume of water is somewhat constant across different

molalities but the partial molal volume of the salts decreases greatly with increasing

molality.

Figure 2 represents the relationship between the partial molal volume of the salt

and molality; both graphs show a quadratic relationship. As molality increases, partial

molal volume of the salt increases as well. R-squared values for figure 2 are not as high

## as those for figure 1 but still show about 90% reliability.

Table 3 is a summary of the values for an infinite dilution using three different

methods of calculation. By taking the derivative of the fit equation for volume versus

molality in the form V = A + B*m+C*m2. An expression for the partial molal volume is

## obtained. This is V2 = B + 2*C*m. The infinite dilution can be found as a limit of

molality approaching 0. This results in the infinite dilution of V2 being equal to the fit

## parameter B. A second method to find V2 at infinite dilution is to take the limit of m  0

again, but use the fit equation obtained in figure 3. A third method is to do the same but

use figure 4. This data shows that method 2 is the most reliable with only a 8.6%

deviation from the literature value for NaCl and a 6.2% deviation for KCl.

In figure 3, φ is plotted against m1/2 for both salts. It was found that there is a

linear relationship between φ and m1/2 for NaCl but a quadratic relationship for KCl. This

could be due to the small range of molalities used. The values for R-squared are not as

desirable as those in previous graphs, values of 0.5847 for NaCl and 0.96381 for KCl
were acquired. The quadratic relationship for KCl, although more accurate, does not fit

## φ =φº + am1/2 + bm (12)

If the salt solutions followed the Debye-Huckel theory, the equation for φ{m} would

provide a single slope of 1.868 for all 1,1-electrolites at 25ºC. This slope changes

depending on charge and temperature. The relationship between φ-1.86m1/2 and m1/2 is

shown in figure 4. φº is the intercept at m=0. The value φº for NaCl was found to be

14.24 and 25.18 for KCl. This means a deviation from the literature value of 14.3% and

6.2% respectively. The graph for NaCl is linear whereas KCl is quadratic. Once again,

## φ =φº + 1.868m1/2 + bm (13)

Table 4 presents information on the differences between the partial molal values of KCl

and NaCl, and between KBr and NaBr at an infinite solution. It is noted that the

difference between the partial molal volumes and the apparent molal volumes of KCl and

NaCl decreases with decreasing molality. We determined that since both KCl and KBr,

and NaCl and KBr are 1,1 electrolytes the difference between them would be equal. The

literature indicates a difference of 6.9 between the partial molal volumes of ions of Cl and

Br. The reason for the disparity between the literature value and the experimental values

Conclusion

The sodium chloride partial molar volume at infinite dilution, 15.19 mL/mol, is

significantly different than a literature value of 16.63 mL/mol by 8.64%. Running more

determinations at greater range of molalities might have lead to the better results than

those obtained. The potassium chloride partial molar volume at infinite dilution, 25.18

## mL/mol, is significantly different than a literature value of 26.85mL/mol. The percent

error between the literature and experimental values for the partial molar volume of

sodium chloride at infinite dilution is 6.23%. This error is smaller than the error in the

potassium chloride measurements. Reasons for these errors include evaporation of water

from the salt chloride solutions during density measurements, not mixing the solutions

thoroughly could have lead to errors, and also the small range of molalities may not

## reflect the behaviors at a larger range of molalities.
