MOLALITY, BOILING AND FREEZING OF SOLUTIONS:

Important Notes to Remember:

*Molality = m = mole of solute / kg of solvent

*Solutions have lower freezing point and higher boiling point as compared to the pure solvent.

*To compute for the freezing point depression, use the equation:

Tf = Kfm(i)

Where :

Tf = freezing point depression

Kf = freezing point depression constant (specific for a given solvent)

(For H2O: Kf = 1.86 0C / m)

m = molality of solution

i = vant Hoff factor

If the solute is nonelectrolyte, i = 1

If the solute is an electrolyte, i = number of ions produced per mole of salt

dissolved in solution

*To compute for the freezing point of the solution, use the equation:

Freezing point of the solution = freezing point of the solvent - freezing point

depression

*To compute for the boiling point elevation, use the equation:

Tb = Kbm(i)

Where:

Tb = boiling point elevation

Kb = boiling point elevation constant (specific for a given solvent)

(For H2O: Kb = 0.512 0C / m)

m = molality of solution

i = vant Hoff factor

If the solute is nonelectrolyte, i = 1

If the solute is an electrolyte, i = number of ions produced per mole of salt

dissolved in solution

*To compute for the boiling point of the solution, use the equation:

Boiling point of the solution = boiling point of the solvent + boiling point elevation

1. What is the freezing , boiling point and molality of a solution with 150 grams of aluminum chloride dissolved in 350 ml of water?

Molality = m = mole solute / kg solvent

Mole AlCl3 = 150 g (1 mole AlCl3 / 133.34 g)

Mole AlCl3 = 1.125

Solving for kilogram of water:
