Vapour pressure of water at 293 K is 17.535 mm Hg. Calculate the vapour pressure of water at 293 K when 25 g of glucose is dissolved in 450 g of water.

$\begin{array}{1 1}17.44mm\\18.44mm\\19.44mm\\15.44mm\end{array} $

$\Rightarrow 180g mol^{-1}$
For solvent $(H_2O)$
Applying Raoult's law
(or) $\large\frac{P^0-P_s}{P^0}=\frac{n_2}{n_1}$
$\large\frac{P^0-P_s}{P^0}=\frac{W_2}{M_2}\times \frac{M_1}{W_1}$
$1-\large\frac{P_s}{P^0}=\frac{25\times 18}{M_2 \times 450}$
$1-\large\frac{P_s}{P^0}=\frac{25\times 18}{180 \times 450}$
$1-\large\frac{P_s}{17.535}=\frac{25\times 18}{180 \times 450}$
$P_s=\large\frac{4500\times 17.535}{4525}$
