    What is the (a) molality, (b) freezing point, and (c) boiling point of a solution containing 2.20 g napthalene (C10H8) in 42.2 g of benzene (C6H6)?

    I know that molality is 0.41 but how do I get freezing and boiling point?

    This is the equation for freezing point ΔT = i Kf m where T is the change in temp, i is the van't Hoff factor, Kf is the molal dreezing point depression constant and m is the molality of the solute

    I used this equation but I kept getting wrong answer. Can you show mw how?

    Kb= 2.53 C/m Kr = 5.1 C/m

    Your first step is to convert your grams of naphthalene and benzene into moles

    So 2.20g *(1 mol/128.17g/mol)=? 42.2 * (1mol/78.11g/mol)=?

    Here I'm sorry I have to go but I found a link that goes through the steps for you Im sorry but I hope it's clear. http://chemed.chem.purdue.edu/genchem/probsolv/colligative/kf1.3.html

    molality is moles of solute per kilogram of solvent, so convert the 2.20g of naphthalene into moles, and the 42.2g of benzene into kilograms

    Good, you already calculate the molality and you said it is 0.41 m you also need the freezing and boiling temperature of the pure solvent (benzene) then with the formula ΔT = Kf m you calculate how much the temperature is going to decrease (k=5.12) (freezing point) or increase (k=2.53) (boiling point) and subtract or add that values from the values of freezing and boiling the pure solvent

    decrease of freezing point ΔT = Kf m =5.12 C/m x 0.41 m = 2.099 C Freezing point of pure benzene = 5.5 C Freezing point of the solution 5.5 C-2.099 C = 3.452 C for the boiling point use the same equation ΔT = Kf m but use the other k=2.53 C/m Boiling point of pure benzene = 80.1C Boiling point of the solution 80.1C + (2.53 C/m x 0.41 m)= ???

    What is the (a) molality, (b) freezing point, and (c) boiling point of a solution containing 100.0 g of ethylene glycol (C2H6O2) in 150.0 g of water? M= 10.74 How about this? I tried using this equation and it is wrong answer.

    how did you do? what is your pure solvent and what is the molality?

    sorry I see the molality is correct 10.74 m

    I understood the first question. I have another which I am confused. m= 10.74 Kb for water = 0.512 C/m Kf for water = 1.86 C/m

    now multiply the values of k times the molality

    Freezing point 0-(1.86x10.74)= ??? Boiling point 100+ (0.512 x 10.74) = ?????

    the freezing point of the solution is below zero is a negative number. the boiling point is above 100 C
