    Solution Preview

    When a solute is dissolved in a solvent, the freezing temperature is lowered in proportion to the number of moles of solute added. This property, known as freezing-point depression, is a colligative property; that is, it depends on the ratio of solute and solvent ...

    Solution Summary

    The solution provides detailed explanations and calculations for the problem, including a reference source on colligative properties.
