The freezing point of a solution is lower than that of the pure solvent. The depression of the freezing point can be determined experimentally using a suitable apparatus (cryoscopy). If the cryoscopy constants of the solvent are known, the molecular mass of the substance dissolved can be determined.


  • All relevant measured variables at a glance
  • Experimentation made easy by intuitive operation
  • With detailed experiment guide


  1. Determine the size of freezing point depression after dissolving a strong electrolyte (NaCl) in water. By comparing the experimental value with the theoretical one predicted for this concentration, determine the number of ions into which the electrolyte dissociates.
  2. Determine the molar mass of a non-electrolyte (hydroquinone) from the value of freezing point depression.
