1) For a freezing point depression experiment we had to create an ice bath and add salt to the ice. I have to answer the question, why was salting the ice necessary in order to complete the experiment and how does this apply to the principles/concepts behind this experiment?

My answer is that we added the salt because it lowers the melting point of the ice, making it melt more readily. It applys to this experiment because we wanted to find the freezing points of different solutions so we needed the ice bath to stay as cool as possible.

Does what I put make sense?
