#### Answer:

Is not freezing point depression simply the product....

#### Explanation:

...where

And so the observed molal freezing point depression is...

But this is a freezing point depression, and so the fusion point of the solution should be

How would the freezing point evolve if we had a solute that underwent speciation in aqueous solution, i.e. say sodium acetate or sodium chloride?
