i need some help with this i don't even know where to begin

A solution of 62.4 g of insulin in enough water to make 1.000 L of solution has an osmotic pressure of 0.305 atm at 25°C. Based on these data, what is the molar mass (MW) of insulin (g/mol)? (Which is the best answer below?)


You can start with the relationship of osmatic pressure to molarity.

  1. You can use the known value of osmotic pressure (0.305 atm) to solve the equation pi=i(MRT) where (i) is Van 't Hoff factor (1 since insulin is not ionic) R is the constant 0.0821 L atm / K mol, and T is temperature in Kelvin. So solving you get:


    since Molar mass is g/mol.

    62.4g/0.012472mol= 5003g/mol or round to 5000g/mol inslulin

    So answer is B 5000
