I am posed with a question which, in order to be solved, needs the Van't Hoff Factor of ethylene glycol. Some research has shown me that ethylene glycol is an electrolyte, but I don't know how it dissociates in water. Any help would be appreciated.

It is not an electrolyte and it does not dissociate in water. One web site I found gave a problem to calculate the molar mass using Kf. I did and found the molar mass of ethylene glycol to be (from that experiment) the molar mass of adding the Cs, Hs, and Os. I assume the factor is 1 for ethylene glycol. I would expect, that, also.

    I believe the question asked to me in class was something like how do you derive the van't hoff factor to find that ln(K2/K1) = -(delta)Hº/R[(1/T2)-(1/T1)] nevermind i found the solution. thanks anyways
