# What happens to the freezing of water if NaCl is added to it?

## What happens to the freezing of water if NaCl is added to it?

When added to ice, salt first dissolves in the film of liquid water that is always present on the surface, thereby lowering its freezing point below the ices temperature. Ice in contact with salty water therefore melts, creating more liquid water, which dissolves more salt, thereby causing more ice to melt, and so on.

How much would the boiling point of water increase if 4 mol of NaCl were added to 1kg of water?

Solution Chemistry : Example Question #4 Two moles of sodium chloride (NaCl) are added to 1kg of a mystery solvent. The addition of the NaCl caused an increase of 6K to the solvent’s boiling point.

How do you calculate change in freezing point?

The freezing point depression ∆T = KF·m where KF is the molal freezing point depression constant and m is the molality of the solute. Rearrangement gives: mol solute = (m) x (kg solvent) where kg of solvent is the mass of the solvent (lauric acid) in the mixture. This gives the moles of the solute.

### Why boiling point of water is increased on addition of NaCl into it?

When you add salt to water, sodium chloride dissociates into sodium and chlorine ions. The water molecules need more energy to produce enough pressure to escape the boundary of the liquid. The more salt (or any solute) added to water, the more you raise the boiling point.

What is the effect on boiling and freezing point of a solution on addition of NaCl?

What is the effect on boiling and freezing point of a solution on addition of NaCl? Boiling point increases and freezing point decreases.

Why is the freezing point of water 0 degrees Celsius?

There are a few ways in which this can happen. The freezing point of water drops below zero degrees Celsius as you apply pressure. Water molecules spread out when they are bonding into a solid crystalline structure. This spreading-out action leads ice to be less dense than liquid water, causing ice to float.

#### How do you calculate the freezing point of water?

You can find the freezing point of any chemical on the material safety data sheet that accompanies it. For example, water has a freezing point of 0 degrees Celsius. You can obtain the moles of your solute by dividing the number of grams dissolved by its molecular mass (see Resources).
