Problem: Consider a solution of 0.10 m CH3F dissolved in water.  The Kf of water is 1.86°C/m. Determine if the statements below is either true or false. Hydrogen bonding will exist between CH3F and H2O.  London dispersion will exist between CH3F and H2O. ` The electron geometry of CH3F is tetrahedral.  Carbon and Fluorine have the same number of core electrons. This solution can be made by adding 3.4 g of CH 3F to 1.0 kg of water.  The freezing point of the solution is −0.186°C.
