The osmotic pressures of equimolar solutions of glucose, potassium chloride and Barium chloride will be in the order

$\begin{array}{1 1}(a)\;glucose > KCl > BaCl_2\\(b)\;glucose > BaCl_2 > KCl\\(c)\;KCl > BaCl_2 > glucose\\(d)\;BaCl_2 > KCl > glucose\end{array}$

1 Answer

Osmotic pressure $(\pi)=iCRT$
As 'i' increases,$'\pi'$ also increases.
i=3 for $BaCl_2$
i=2 for $KCl$
i=1 for glucose
Hence (d) is the correct answer.
