Why is freezing point depression of 0.1 M sodium chloride solution is nearly twice that of 0.1 M glucose solution ?

No comments

the depression in freezing point (which is a colligative property) depends upon the number of solute particles present in the solution. when sodium chloride is mixed in the water it dissociates into Na+ and Cl– ions thus this increases the number of particles . but glucose don’t dissociate and its freezing point is higher than Sodium chloride.
