Textbook Problem

The freezing point of an aqueous solution is − 2.79°C.

a. Determine the boiling point of this solution.

b. Determine the vapor pressure (in mm Hg) of this solution at 25°C (the vapor pressure of pure water at 25°C is 23.76 mm Hg).

c. Explain any assumptions you make in solving parts a and b.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: The boiling point and vapor pressure of the given aqueous solutions are should be calculated.

Concept introduction:

  • Elevation of boiling point:

    The boiling point of the solution is increases when the solute is dissolved in the solvent is called Elevation of boiling point. it is one of the colligative Properties thus,

  • Depression in freezing point:

    The freezing point the solution is decreases when the solute is dissolved in the solvent is called depression in freezing point. it is one of the colligative Properties thus,

  • Raoult's law:

    The mole fraction of a solute is related to the vapor pressure of the solution thus,

Record the given data,

           Freezing point of an aqueous solution =- 2.79°C

To calculate molality of the aqueous solution:

           Molal boiling-point elevation constantof water =0.51°C/molMolal freezing-point elevation constantof water=1.86°C/mol


  • The given values are plugging in to equation 1 and do some rearrangement to give molality of the aqueous solution.
  • The molality of the aqueous solution is 1.50molal .

To calculate the boiling point of aqueous solution.


  • The calculated molality of the aqueous solution and molal boiling point elevation constant are plugging in to equation 1and do some rearrangement to give boiling point of the aqueous solution.
  • The boiling point of aqueous solution is 100.077°C .

Record the given data,

Vapor pressure of pure water at 25°C=23.76 mm Hg

To calculate the vapor pressure of the given aqueous solution.
