Best Answer

The effect of a solute on the freezing point and boiling point of a solvent is related to what is known as the colligative property. Upon addition of the solute, the freezing point will be lowered, and the boiling point will be increased. The magnitude of the change will depend on the solute and how many particles it forms upon dissolving, and on the nature of the solvent and the freezing/boiling point constant for that solvent.

How do solutes change solvents?

They can change by lowering the freezing point.

How adding solute changes the properties of a solvent?

Solutes raise and lower the boiling points of solvents. :)


Which of these values is most responsible for changing the boiling and freezing points of a solvent?

Boiling point is dependent from pressure. Solutes also have a great impact on the freezing and boiling point.


How does the principle like dissolves like explain the differing solubilities of solutes in various solvents?

Generally polar solutes are dissolved in polar solvents and nonpolar solutes are dissolved in nonpolar solvents.

Do solutes increase or decrease the boiling point of a solvent?

No; solutes don't decrease the boiling point of the solvent, they increase it! Solutes decrease the melting point of the solvent! Think of it this way: low goes lower (melting point) and high goes higher (boiling point).


What are the solutes in air and what are the solvents?

Solutes are substances dissolved in a solvent.


What is the effect of salt on the freezing point of water and other liquids?

NaCl (Table Salt) is a solute in H2O, water, the solvent. Solid solutes lower the melting point (freezing point) points and raise the boiling points of liquid solvents. The particles of the salt interfere with the change of state, therefore causing liquid solvents to freeze (and/or melt) at lower temperatures and for liquid to boil at higher temperatures.
