A solution of methanol and water has a mole fraction of water of 0.312 and a total vapor pressure of 21 torr at 39.9 degrees C. The vapor pressures of pure methanoland pure water at this temperature are 256 torr and 55.3 torr , respectively.

Is the solution Ideal? NO, it isnt.

What can you say about the relative strengths of the solute-solvent interactions compared to the solute-solute and solvent-solvent interactions?

a. the methanol-water interactions are stronger than the methanol-methanol and water-water interactions.
b. the methanol-water interactions are weaker than the methanol-methanol and water-water interactions.
