The boiling point of diethyl ether CH3CH2OCH2CH3 is 34.500C at 1 atmosphere. A nonvolatile, nonelectrolyte that dissolves in diethyl ether is cholesterol .

How many grams of cholesterol, C27H46O (386.6 g/mol), must be dissolved in 208.0 grams of diethyl ether to raise the boiling point by 0.5000C ?

1. delta T = Kb*molality
You know delta T (0.500C) and Kb, solve for m.

m = mols solute/kg solvent.
You know m and kg solvent, solve for mols

Then mols solute = grams/molar mass. You know mols and molar mass, solve for grams.
