When 14.3 g of a certain molecular compound X are dissolved in

85.0 g of benzene C6H6, the freezing point of the solution is measured to be 0.5 °C. Calculate the molar mass of X.

molal freezing point depression constant (Kf)
°C·kg·mol−1 of benzen is 5.07

If you need any additional information on benzene, use only what you find in the ALEKS Data resource. Also, be sure your answer has a unit symbol, and is rounded to

2

significant digits.

Step 1

The equation for depression in freezing point is given below.

Step 2

The freezing point of pure benzene is 5.40 C. Then depression in freezing point = freezing point of pure benzene – freezing point of solution = 5.40 C – 0.50 C = 4.90 C. Suppose, the unknown c...
