According to definition of solutions, the substance which is present in less amount is said to be solute and the one which is present in large amount is called solvent then why in numericals (based on depression in freezing point) even though ethylene glycol is present in large amount it is taken as solute?

Answers : (1)


Actually amount of substance is compared on basis of number of moles of that substance in solution and not on basis of weight of that substance,one with larger moles is solvent &vice versa.and in these questions ethylene glycol is having lesser moles then solvent (water).
