    1. convert grams of water to kilograms 2. divide moles of NaCl by kilograms of water to find molality 3. determine the van't Hoff factor (i) of NaCl (which is 2, in this case, since NaCl dissociates into Na+ and Cl-) 4. boiling point elevation = (kb)*i*molality 5. add the boiling point elevation to the original boiling point of water (100 degrees Celcius)
