Ideal and Non-ideal Solutions
Can you easily recall the conditions of ideal and non-ideal solutions? If yes, good work! And if not, do not worry. You just need to remember two words- "HIGH VOLTAGE"
On the basis of Raoult's law, liquid-liquid solutions are classified as "Ideal" and "Non-ideal", and they follow certain conditions.
- There is no change in volume on mixing the two components, i.e,
- There is no change in the enthalpy when two components are mixed, i.e,
When we mix sulphuric acid in water, the amount of heat generated is quite large, and a change in volume is observed. The solution formed is a non-ideal one. Now, the conditions for a non-ideal solution are-
