Freezing Point Depression Inquiry Guidance & AP* Chemistry Curriculum Alignment Transition Guide

The freezing point depression and other colligative properties of a solution were traditionally used to determine the molar mass of a solute. While this method has been superseded by modern instrumental methods for molar mass determination, it remains an interesting experiment for understanding the physical basis of the freezing point, and also for its applications to daily life.
