Solution

## 45 g of ethylene glycol is mixed with 600 g of water.The molar mass of ethylene glycol =62 g/molMoles of ethylene glycol=$\frac{45}{62}$=0.726 moles.600g of water =0.600kg of water.Molality (m): The number of moles of solute dissolved in 1000g (1 kg) of a solvent is known as the molality of the solution.$\mathrm{Molality}\left(\mathrm{m}\right)=\frac{\mathrm{Moles}\mathrm{of}\mathrm{solute}}{\mathrm{Mass}\mathrm{of}\mathrm{solvent}\left(\mathrm{in}\mathrm{Gram}\right)}×1000$$\mathrm{Molality}\left(\mathrm{m}\right)=\frac{0.726}{600}×1000=1.21\mathrm{m}$The depression in the freezing point ΔT =${\mathrm{k}}_{\mathrm{f}}×\mathrm{m}$$∆\mathrm{T}={\mathrm{k}}_{\mathrm{f}}×\mathrm{m}=1.86×1.21=2.25\mathrm{K}$​The freezing point of pure water =273.15 K.The freezing point of solution =273.15+2.25=270.90 K45g of ethylene glycol is mixed with 600g of water. The freezing point of the solution is 270.90K.  Suggest Corrections  0      Similar questions  Explore more
