Solution

## A) B solute Depression in freezing point = Kf x m (molality = no. of moles dissolved in per Kg solvent) so, greater the molar mass lesser the no. of moles so lesser is the depression in freezing points so, B with lower molecular mass will have higher depreesion in freezing point B)B (Solute) as The similar formula is used for elevation (increase in boiling point) Tb = Kb x m So,lesser the molar mass higher will be no .of moles and so greater is elevation in boiling point. C) B solute will show lower vapor pressure because we know that, P0 -Ps/P0 = W2 x M1 / W1 x M2 Here, lowering of vapor pressure (p0-ps) is directly related with amount in gram and inversely related with molar mass of non-volatile solute. Here molar mass of A is greater than B, so B will have lower vapor pressure.  Suggest Corrections  1      Similar questions  Explore more
