FREE Expert Solution

In this problem, we are asked to find which solution has the greatest increase in its boiling point.

Colligative Properties are an intensive property of matter that is only applied to solutions.

  • This property depends only on the number of the particle of solute and solvent.

There are four colligative properties.

  • Boiling Point
  • Freezing Point
  • Vapor Pressure
  • Osmotic Pressure

This problem is concerned with the boiling point elevation of the solution.
