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 102g/mol.D.Evidence Compose and attach a statement of the evidence you have to support each of the claims youmade in Section C. You will need to describe some theoretical background about osmosis andfreezing point depression. Specifically using your data, (you must use actual numbers and resultsfrom your experiment) explain why your claims are correct. You may refer to other sections of
