Problem: A biochemical engineer isolates a bacterial gene fragment and dissolves a 10.0-mg sample in enough water to make 30.0 mL of solution. The osmotic pressure of the solution is 0.340 torr at 25°C.(b) If the solution density is 0.997 g/mL, how large is the freezing point depression for this solution (Kf of water = 1.86°C/m)?
