26-The freezing point of a 0.08 m solution of NaHSO 4 is 0.372 C. Calculate the
dissociation constant for the reaction:
HSO4 H+ + SO42

## Kf for water = 1.86Km1

NaHSO4 dissociates as :
NaHSO4 Na+ + HSO4
Since the concentration of NaHSO4 is 0.08 m
[Na+] = [HSO4 ] = 0.08m
Now , HSO4 also dissociates as : HSO4 H+ + SO42If is the degree of dissociation, then after dissociation at equilibrium
[ HSO4] = 0.08 (1 ) , [H+] = 0.08 , [ SO42-] =0.08

## Total concentration of all ions [Na++ HSO4+H+ + SO42-]

Exist as monomer in acetone and dimer in benzene.Dimeric nature is due to
intermolecular H bonding .
