Two liquids X and \: Y form an ideal solution. At 300 K, vapour pressure of the solution containing 1 mol of X and 3 mol of Y is 550 mm Hg. At the same temperature, if 1 mol of Y is   further added to this solution, vapour pressure of the solution increases by 10 mm Hg. Vapour pressure (in mm Hg) of X and \: Y in their pure states will be, respectively

  • Option 1)

    200 and 300

  • Option 2)

    300 and 400

  • Option 3)

    400 and 600

  • Option 4)

    500 and 600

As we learnt in

Rault's Law -

The total vapour pressure of binary mixture of miscible liquids be having ideally is given by

P_{T}= P_{A}^{0}x_{A}+P_{B}^{0}x_{B}

Where x_{A}  and  x_{B} are mole fraction of A and B in liquid phase.

 

 

- wherein

P_{A}^{0}  and P_{B}^{0} are vapour pressures of pure liquids.

 

 p=p_{A}^{0}\chi_{A}+p_{B}^{0}\chi_{B}

Given that 1 mole x & 3 mole y 

\chi_{A}=\frac{1}{4},\ \; \chi_{B}=\frac{3}{4}

550=p_{A}^{0}\times \frac{1}{4}+p_{B}^{0}\times \frac{3}{4}                                        (1)

After adding 1 mole y the vapour pressure is 560 

560=p_{A}^{0}\times \frac{1}{5}+p_{B}^{0}\times \frac{4}{5}                                        (2)

By solving equation 1 & 2

p_{A}^{0}=400,\ \; p_{B}^{0}=600

Correct option is 3.
