How many grams of ethylene glycol (C2H6O2) per kilogram of water are needed to give protection up to 120 °C in a car radiator?

  • Chem II -

    Do you mean to keep the car radiator water from boiling?
    delta T = 20 = Kb*molality
    Solve for m.

    m = mols/kg solvent
    m = mols/kg water. You must know the volume of the radiator.

    mol = grams/molar mass. You know mols an molar mass ethylene glycol; solve for grams ethylene glycol.

    I feel I wasn't given enough information to answer the question originally, but I will try to do my best with what I was given.

  • Chem II -

    First, you need the boiling constant of water which is 0.512 oC/m.

    molality= Delta T / Kb

    molality= 120 oC / 0.512 oC/m = 234 m
