Factors That Affect The Concentration Of A Solvent

Decent Essays

Colligative property is a basic of science and tends to happen in our everyday lives. According to our section, colligative property is a property of a solvent that depends on the number of solute particles issued in it, but not on the identity or nature of those solute particles. When more solute that is added to a given amount of solvent, the more a colligative property of that solvent changes. The change in vapor pressure, boiling point, and freezing point are all examples of colligative properties.
Vapor pressure is reversible due to the fact that gas particles can come in contact with the surface of a liquid and can become attached to the liquid particles and then condensed back to the liquid phase. As you increase the temperature of …show more content…

This disruption of the freezing process results in a lower freezing point for the solution compared to the pure solvent.” Freezing point occurs quite frequently in our everyday lives especially in the winter, for example, when ice freezes on the streets where people walk and drive. We put salt down on the road to prevent accidents and salt can lower the freezing of water. As I understand, salt melts the ice and won’t let that water freeze again until the temperatures get even lower that they are at that time. Due to the salt melting the ice and freezing again it can create black ice.
Black ice tends to be smooth, hard, and clear. Packed snow more than likely will turn into black ice, especially when it rains and then temperatures drop below freezing. Black ice occurs when temperatures are below 30 degree C. Black ice is similar to regular ice, although, black ice is very hard to see. Black ice is transparent to the surface it is on. Having this type of ice makes driving, walking, biking, skating, or any other type of movement very dangerous. To prevent black ice, remove packed snow completely. If not removed, the snow consist of feathery, six-sided crystals of ice. These feathery snowflakes can cause fluffy and light snow. A few days after, snow gradually compacts together and get less fluffy. Inside the snow, water molecules are
