1. The % dissolved solids in my potato is 9.148 %. 2. The freezing temperature for pure lauric acid is 44.0 °C. 3. The MM of the unknown organic acid is 1.6 x 10 2 g/mol. D. Evidence Compose and attach a statement of the evidence you have to support each of the claims you made in Section C. You will need to describe some theoretical background about osmosis and freezing point depression. Specifically using your data, (you must use actual numbers and results from your experiment) explain why your claims are correct. You may refer to other sections of

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
