  1. You don't say if the solute is volatile or non-volatile. I assume it is volatile. Since X is used for mole fraction, I will change the unknown compound to Y.
    mols Y = 2/32 = ?
    mols CS2 = 100/76 = ?
    total molsl = ? + ? = ?
    Then XCS2 = mols CS2/total mols = ?
    XY</sub) = mols Y/total mols = ?

    The pressure due to CS2 is
    pCS2 = XCS2 * PoCS2 = ?
    Total Psolution = 848.9
    pY = 848.9-pCS2
    Finally,
    pY = Xy*PoY
    Solve for Y po (vapor pressure Y). look it up in tables to find the compound. Post your work if you get stuck.
