Ethylene glycol is used as an antifreeze in a cold climate. Mass of ethylene glycol whichshould be added to 4 kg of water to prevent it from freezing at –6°C will be: (Kf forwater = 1.86 K kg mol–1, and molar mass of ethylene glycol= 62gmol–1

Let the mass of ethylene glycol be xgm
we have freezing point of water as 0 degreeC
depression in freezing in freezing point=0-(-6)=6degreeC
Now depression in freezing point=Kf*m
m is the molality of the solution
m=(x/62)/4=x/248
we have
6=(1.86*x)/248
=800gm

W=6×4000×62÷1000÷1.86=8006=∆t4000=mass of water in gms 62= molecular mass of ethylene glycol1.86= k

Dear student,
Please find the answer to your question.
 
Let the mass of ethylene glycol be xgm
we have freezing point of water as 0oC
depression in freezing in freezing point=0 – ( – 6) = 6oC
Now depression in freezing point = Kf*m
m is the molality of the solution
m = (x/62)/4 = x/248
we have
6 = (1.86*x)/248
Hence, x = 248*6/1.86 = 800gm
 
Thanks and regards,
Kushagra
