How does the boiling point of a solution evolve with INCREASED number of particles in solution? How would the boiling point increase given #0.1*mol*L^1# concentrations of #NaCl#, and #BaCl_2# in a water solvent?

Answer:

The boiling point of a solution........

Explanation:

The boiling point of a solution........RISES according to the number of species in the solution. Both glucose, and urea are molecular. On the other hand, the #"barium chloride"#, and #"sodium chloride"# solution will EACH be #0.1*mol*L^-1# with respect to #NaCl# and #BaCl_2#.

The barium chloride will be #0.1*mol*L^-1# with respect to #Ba^(2+)#, but #0.2*mol*L^-1# with respect to #Cl^-#. Since the barium chloride solution contains the GREATEST NUMBER of solute particles, we would predict that this solution should exhibit the highest boiling point.
