# 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

Dear student,

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,
