find the molality of the solution

1 .. find molar mass of C10H8 = ???

2. moles of C10H8 ... 12.8 / molar mass = ???

3. find kilograms of benzene .. 104.0 X 0.877 / 1000 .... use a calculator

4. find molality of the solution .. answer 2 / answer 3

=============================

5. use the formula ,,,

delta T = molal freexing point depression constant X molality (answer from 4)

... 6 ... look up normal freexing point of pure benzene .... then subtract delta T (answer 5)

======= similarly for boiling point elevation

... you have the book with all the constants, I don't. This is how to do it.
