Why does H2O + Sugar have a higher boiling point than Water? I said that H20 + Sugar has a solute of sugar which absorbs some of the heat when boiled. Is that correct?

Can you check my answer in the last boiling point topic I posted? Thanks.
April 29, 2009

Boiling point (DrBob)
If you add 2g of NaCl to 23mL of water, what is the boiling point? . 2 g/molar mass Salt = 58.4425 mole of salt delta T = Kb*m delta T = 0.512 x 0.23 = 0.113 or about 113 C. I tried to model this problem like you did, but I don't know if I did it correctly.
April 29, 2009

Boiling point
You add 2g of sugar into 23mL of water. Estimate the boiling point. I would say its above 100 since waters boiling point is 100. So maybe 120?

45-m/30 = 165 Multiply both sides by 30 45-m = 4 950 Subtract 45 from both sides -m = 4905 M cannot be negative so change signs on both sides. m = -4905 Now if you plug in what m equals you should get 165 45-(-4905)/30=165
