You make a solution of a nonvolatile solute with a liquid solvent:

(a) The freezing point of the solution is higher than that of the pure solvent.

Recall that the freezing point of a solution is lower than that of the pure solvent and the change in freezing point (ΔT­f) is given by:

The statement is FALSE.

(b) The freezing point of the solution is lower than that of the pure solvent.
