Boiling Point and Freezing Point of Solution The temperature at which the vapor pressure of the liquid is equal to the atmospheric pressure is termed as the boiling point . The boiling point of any liquid increases by adding a non-volatile solute to it. This increases the vapor pressure. Elevation in the boiling point ( T b

Unformatted text preview: ) is directly proportional to the amount of solute present. Concentration of the solute is expressed in molalities (m) Thus ∆ T b = mK b m = concentration in molalities K b = molal boiling point elevation constant. The temperature at which the solid and liquid are in equilibrium is termed as the freezing point ....
