Calculate moles first: moles glucose = 15.5 g/ atomic mass = 15.5 g/ (6*12+12*1+6*16) = 15.5/180 = 0.086 Calculate molality next: (molality and molarity are the same when water is the solvent) 0.086 moles/ .245 kg water = 0.3515 m Calculate temp depression: 1.86 oC/M *.3515 m = 0.65 oC so the freezing point will drop from 0oC to 0.65oC.
