# Problem: What is the boiling point of a 0.10 M solution of NaHSO4 if the solution has a density of 1.002 g/mL?

###### FREE Expert Solution

We’re being asked to determine the boiling point of a solution. The solution is composed of 0.10 M NaHSO4

Recall that the boiling point of a solution is higher than that of the pure solvent and the change in boiling point (ΔTb) is given by:

The change in boiling point is also related to the molality of the solution:

$\overline{){\mathbf{∆}}{{\mathbf{T}}}_{{\mathbf{b}}}{\mathbf{=}}{{\mathbf{iK}}}_{{\mathbf{b}}}{\mathbf{m}}}$

where:

i = van’t Hoff factor

m = molality of the solution (in m or mol/kg)

Kb = boiling point elevation constant (in ˚C/m)

Recall that the molality of a solution is given by:

And the molarity of a solution is given by:
