Question

(i) Gas (A) is more soluble in water than Gas (B) at the same temperature which one of two gases will the higher value of K(Henry's constant) and why ?

(ii)In non-ideal solution, what type of deviation shows the formation of maximum boiling azeotropes?

Answer

(i)According to Henry's law , at the constant temperature, the solubility of the gas in a liquid is directly proportional to the partial pressure of the gas on the surface of the liquid or solution. Gas B  has a Higher value of KH and thus lower is the solubility of the gas.
p = KHx
(ii) Negative deviation from Raoult’s law
