A 0.1539 molal aqueous solution of cane sugar (molar mass = 342g )  has a freezing point of 271K while the freezing point of pure water is 273.15K . what will be the freezing point of an aqueous solution containing 5g of glucose (molar mass= 180g) per 100 g of solution?

Molality of the given solution = 0.1539m

Tf = 273.15 – 271 = 2.15 K

Therefore ∆Tf  = Kf .m

Kf = Tf / m

Kf = 2.15/0.1539

 Now mass of the solute W2 = 5g

Molar mass of the solute M2 = 180g

Mass of the solution W1 = 100g

 Now the mass of solvent = 95g

Using the following formula:-

=4.08 K

So the freezing point of the solution will be = 273.15 – 4.08

                                                                                                = 269.07 K
