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

# Solution: Nicotine, extracted from tobacco leaves, is a liquid completely miscible with water at temperatures below  60°C. What is the molality of nicotine (a covalent substance) in an aqueous solution that starts to freeze at -0.450°C? (Note that the Kf for water is 1.86 °C m -1)a) 2.42b) 0.0336c) 4.13d) 29.7e) 0.242

###### Problem

Nicotine, extracted from tobacco leaves, is a liquid completely miscible with water at temperatures below  60°C. What is the molality of nicotine (a covalent substance) in an aqueous solution that starts to freeze at -0.450°C? (Note that the Kf for water is 1.86 °C m -1)

a) 2.42

b) 0.0336

c) 4.13

d) 29.7

e) 0.242

###### Solution

We’re being asked to find the molality of a solution when nicotine is dissolved in water. When calculating the freezing point of a solution, we’re going to use the equation for Freezing Point Depression.

∆Tf = change in freezing point = Tf pure solvent –Tf solution
Kf = freezing point depression constant
i = van' t Hoff factor of the solute = no. of ions
m = molality

Determine the required values for the Freezing Point Depression equation:
