FREEZING POINT DEPRESSION LAB PURPOSE The purpose of this experiment is to demonstrate the effect of solutes on the freezing point of water. DESCRIPTION This experiment is suitable for a first-year course. It could also be included in a second-year course as part of a unit on colligative properties. The calculations require the use of the equation, T = (K f ) (m) (i) . In the first part of the experiment, various solutes are added to water and the resultant freezing points of the solutions are determined. The value of i , dissolved particles per formula unit, is calculated. In the second part, the molar mass of glycerol is determined. TIME REQUIRED Two lab periods. MATERIALS Chemicals: Ice, C 12 H 22 O 11 (sucrose), NaCl and unknown ( nonelectrolyte ) Equipment: Test tubes, thermometer or thermo couples and Vernier LabQuest, 400-mL beaker, 100-mL beakers, 100-mL graduated cylinder, stirring rods and weighing dishes. HAZARDS Laboratory chemical should not be ingested. The ice used in the experiment could become contaminated with chemicals by accident; students should be warned not to eat the ice. Goggles must be worn throughout the experiment. MODIFICATIONS/SUBSTITUTIONS 1. Table sugar may be substituted for reagent grade sucrose. 2. Table salt can be substituted for laboratory grade NaCl. 3. A 10-ounce Styrofoam cups can be substituted for the 400-mL beaker. Adatped from

    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.
