Question
Insulin is a protein that regulates carbohydrate metabolism by
decreasing blood sugar levels. A deficiency in insulin leads to diabetes.
An aqueous solution of insulin contains 0.360 moles of insulin in 50.0 g
water. What is the boiling point of this solution? Water has a kb = 0.512
°C/m and the molar mass of insulin is 5730 g/mol.
