hello guys!

i am stucked at this one. i hope you can help me out.

the question:

deremine the osmolarity of 5* 10^-3 M Na3Po4

we say that:
osmolarity =

3*5*10^-3 + 4*5*10^-3
OR
3*5*10^-3 +1*5*10^-3 + 4*5*10^-3

thank you

why would there be an extra 1*5*10^-3 anyway...

Let's see, Are you saying that Sodium Phosphate when dissolved in water will break up into Sodium, Phosphorous and Oxygen?

What do you think about it dissociating into sodium and phosphate ions?
