What is the freezing point of a solution made by dissolving 450 g of ethylene glycol (C2H6O2) in 550 g of water? The freezing point of pure water is 0.0ºC and Kf of pure water is -1.86ºC/m.

  1. moles ethylene glycol = grams/molar mass.
    Solve for moles.

    m = moles solute/kg solvent
    Solve for m

    delta T = Kf*m
    solve for delta T, then for T.
