A glucose solution contains 55.8 g of glucose (C6H12O6) in 455 g of water. Calculate the freezing point and boiling point of the solution. (Assume a density of 1.00 g/mL for water.)
Solution 105 P:
Here, we are going to calculate the boiling point and freezing point of the solution .
Step 1: Calculation of the amount of glucose in mol
Molar mass of glucose = 180.15 g/mol
Mass of glucose = 55.8 g
Amount of glucose in mol = 55.8 g/180.1559 g/mol = 0.3097 mol
