🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Yang's class at UH.

Solution: Ethylene glycol (C2H6O2) is a common automobile antifreeze, dissolving in water to make a nonelectrolytic solution. Consider now a 8.0 molal aqueous solution of ethylene glycol. At what temperature would you expect this solution to freeze under normal conditions? The freezing point depression constant for water is Kf = 1.86°C/m.

Problem

Ethylene glycol (C2H6O2) is a common automobile antifreeze, dissolving in water to make a nonelectrolytic solution.

Consider now a 8.0 molal aqueous solution of ethylene glycol. At what temperature would you expect this solution to freeze under normal conditions? The freezing point depression constant for water is Kf = 1.86°C/m.
