Question: lysozyme is an enzyme that cleaves bacterial cell walls a...

Question details

Lysozyme is an enzyme that cleaves bacterial cell walls. A sample of lysozyme extracted from egg white has a molar mass of 13,930 g. A quantity of 0.700 g of this enzyme is dissolved in 1.20 × 102 g of water at 25°C. Calculate the vapor-pressure lowering, the depression in freezing point, the elevation in boiling point, and the osmotic pressure of this solution. (The vapor pressure of water at 25°C is 23.76 mmHg.) Report each of your answers to 3 significant figures. Vapor-pressure lowering = mmHg Depression in freezing point = °C Elevation in boiling point = °C Osmotic pressure = atm
