We’re being asked to determine the mass of ethylene glycol in water when the equilibrium vapor pressure is lowered to 0.80 atm from 1 atm

Recall that the vapor pressure of a solution can be given by Raoult’s Law:

where P˚ = vapor pressure of solvent/water and χ = mole fraction of solvent. Mole fraction is given by:
