What effect does a solute have on the freezing and boiling points of the solution?
The phenomena of
Both phenomena are colligative properties, that depend on the number of particles of solute in solution. Colligative properties include boiling point elevation and vapour pressure depression, osmotic pressures, and freezing point depression. Ionic solutes, that are presumed to speciate in solution, i.e. form solvated
What sort of effect is exploited when salt is scattered on icy roads during winter?
