    Solution Preview

    1) Molality means moles of solute in kg of solvent, so we need to find moles of C12H22O11, molecular weight=342.3g/mol

    89.5g * 1mol/342.3g = 0.261moles of this substance

    895g * ...

    Solution Summary

    In this solution we learn how to calculate the molality of a solution. Then we predict whether the solution will change its freezing point. An explanation for why it does or does not change is included!
