What mass in grams of a molecular substance (molar mass = 50.0 g/mol) must be added to 500 g of water to produce a solution that boils at 101.02 °C? (Kbp = 0.512 °C/m for water.)

a. 43 g

b. 50 g

c. 78 g

d. 92 g

e.  112g


We’re being asked to determine the mass of an unknown compound with a molar mass of 50 g/mol if the boiling point of the aqueous solution is 101.02 ˚C

For this problem, we have to follow the steps:

Step 1. Establish the necessary equations

Step 2. Calculate for molality

Step 3.  Calculate for mass

Step 1. 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:
