  1. First calculate the molality.
    m = mols NaCl/kg solvent.

    1.1% NaCl = 1.1 g NaCl/100 g solution. That is 1.1 g NaCl/98.9 g H2O) = 1.1 g NaCl/0.0989 kg H2O.
    mols NaCl in 1.1 g = 1.1/58.45 = 0.0188

    mols NaCl = g NaCl/molar mass NaCl = about 1.1/58.45 = about 0.0188.
    Then m = mols NaCl/kg solvent = 0.0188/0.0989 = ?
    The van't Hoff for NaCl is 2 (two particles per mol NaCl) so the osmolality is 2*0.0188. Check my calculations and significant figures as well as molar mass NaCl.
