Temperature is usually measured in kelvin (K), Celsius (°C) or Fahrenheit (°F). The Celsius and Fahrenheit scales are empirical, whereas (as we shall see in Chapter 3) the kelvin scale is an absolute scale based on the Second Law of thermodynamics: 0 K is the absolute zero, the lowest possible temperature.
An unknown organic compound has the empirical formula C2H2O. A solution of 3.775 g of the unknown compound dissolved in 12.00 g of water is cooled until it freezes at a temperature of 4.72°C. Determine the molar mass and the molecular formula of the compound.
