As the number of solute particles in a given volume of solution increase will:
freezing point increase, vapor press decrease? or vice versa
boiling point increase, vapor pressure decrease? or vice versa?
As # solute particles increases, freezing point decreases and vapor pressure decreases.
As # solute particles increase, vapor pressure gets smaller and boiling point gets larger.
I like this statement that summarizes it all.
As the number of solute particles increases, three things happen.
a. f.p is lowered.
b. b.p. is raised.
c. v.p. is lowered.
