Freezing point depression lab

Using Freezing-Point Depression to Find Molecular Weight Abstract: In this lab, the purpose was to use the freezing point depression method to determine the molecular weight of aspirin. This was done by determining the freezing of t-butanol and that of a t-butanol and aspirin solution; then finding the molality of the solution, and moles of aspirin. In the results of the experiment, the molar mass was found to be 192.2 g/mol, which differed from the established value of 180.2 g/mol by 6.7% error. Introduction: Freezing point depression defined as a vertical medium in reference to boiling point elevation. The general definition is the effect of lowering the freezing point of a substance due to an increased amount of solute added…
