FREE Expert Solution

Establish the molality equation and determine the molality of a mixture of 9.52 g heptane (C7H16) and 87 g benzene (C6H6)

Recall that molality can be calculated as:

molality = moles of solutekg of solvent


In this case, we need to convert the mass of heptane to moles and mass of benzene to kg
