The freezing point of a 0.10 m solution of mercury(I) nitrate is approximately -0.27 celsius (Assuming that the person who prepared the solution thought it was HgNO3) Why do these data suggest that the formula of the mercury(I) ion is Hg2^2+ ? Assume the molecular formula for mercury(I) nitrate is HgNO3, calculate the freezing point based on this assumption.
