What is the molality of a water solution that boils at 101.70°C?
The molality of the solution is 3.32 mol/kg.
Water has a
This means that, for every mole of particles in 1 kg of water, the interference with the water molecules will raise the boiling point by 0.512 °C.
The normal boiling of water is 100.00 °C.
101.70 - 100.00 = 1.70, so the increase of the boiling point is 1.70 °C.
The molality is 3.32 m.
This molality could be achieved by dissolving 1 mol of a salt like
