# Problem: When 13.62 g (about one tablespoon) of table sugar (sucrose, C12H22O11) is dissolved in 241.5 mL of water (density 0.997 g/mL), the final volume is 250.0 mL (about one cup).Calculate the expected boiling point for the solution.

We’re being asked to determine the boiling point of a solution. The solution is composed of 13.62 g sucrose in 241.5 mL water

Recall that the boiling point of a solution is higher than that of the pure solvent and the change in boiling point (ΔT­b) is given by:

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

$\overline{){\mathbf{∆}}{{\mathbf{T}}}_{{\mathbf{b}}}{\mathbf{=}}{{\mathbf{iK}}}_{{\mathbf{b}}}{\mathbf{m}}}$

where:

i = van’t Hoff factor

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

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

Recall that the molality of a solution is given by:
