Calculate the freezing point of a solution of 35 g methyl salicylate dissolved in 800 g of benzene for benzene is 5.10 Celsius/m and the freezing point is 5.50 degrees Celsius for benzene 


Expert Answer

Step 1

The term molality refers to the ratio of number of moles of the given solute to the amount of solvent in kilogram. The formula is as follows:
