Chapter 12, Problem 12.23QP
Textbook Problem

If 291g of a compound is added to 1.02 kg of water to increase the boiling point by 5.77°C, what is the molar mass of the added compound? (Assume a van ’t Hoff factor of 1.)

  1. a 31.1 g/mol
  2. b 30.3 g/mol
  3. c 28.5 g/mol
  4. d 18.3 g/mol
  5. e 25.3 g/mol

Expert Solution


Given the elevation of boiling point, the molecular weight of a compound has to be determined and the correct answer has to be chosen from the following options –

  1. (a) 31.1 g/mol (b) 30.3 g/mol (c) 28.5 g/mol (d) 18.3 g/mol (e) 25.3 g/mol
Interpretation Introduction

Concept Introduction:

Elevation in boiling point is a colligative property which refers to increase in boiling point of the solution due to the addition of non-volatile solute. It is expressed as,

ΔTb =


ΔTb = elevation in boiling pointKb = boiling point elevation constantcm = molal concentration

Molality or molal concentration is one of the many parameters that is used to express concentration of a solution.  It is expressed as,

Molality = number of moles of solutemass of solvent in kg

Explanation of Solution

Given that 291 g of a compound is dissolved in 1.02 kg of water.  Boiling point elevation of the solution, ΔTb = 5.77°C .

From the data given in the table 12.3 in text book, Kb for water is 0.512°C/m.

Therefore, molality of the solution is calculated as,

ΔTb =

Rewriting the above equation,

cm  ΔTbKb 5.77°C0.512°C/m = 11.27 m

As we know,

Molality  = number of moles of solutemass of solvent in kg

Rewriting the above expression,

no.of moles of solute  = molality × mass of solvent = 11
