ΔT­b is given by:

The change in boiling point is also related to the molality of the solution:

$\overline{){{\mathbf{\Delta T}}}_{{\mathbf{b}}}{\mathbf{=}}{{\mathbf{imK}}}_{{\mathbf{b}}}}$

where:

i = van’t Hoff factor

m = molality of the solution (in m or mol/kg)

Kb = boiling point elevation constant (in ˚C/m) of the solvent
