Problem Details

Imagine two solutions with the same concentration and the same boiling point, but one has benzene as the solvent and the other has carbon tetrachloride as the solvent. Determine the molal concentration, m (or b), and boiling point, Tb.

Given that

Benzene boiling point = 80.1          K = 2.53

Carbon tetrachloride boiling point = 76.8      K = 5.03
