Homework Help: Chemistry

Posted by James on Friday, February 17, 2012 at 8:08pm.

Acetic acid is a polar molecule and can form hydrogen bonds with water molecules. Therefore, it has high solubility in water. Yet acetic acid is also soluble in benzene (C6H6), a nonpolar solvent that lacks the ability to form hydrogen bonds. A solution of 3.8g of CH3COOH in 80g of C6H6 has a freezing point of 3.5 degrees celsius. Calculate the molar mass of the solute and suggest what it's structure might be.
