We had an experiment that involved finding the freezing point of cyclohexane. If some of the cyclohexane evaporates during the exp., how would this affect the freezing point determination?
I am thinking it would raise the freezing point because less of it is there so you don't need a very low freezing point. But, I don't know. Every 30 seconds the temp decreased. The Tf was 6.5C. The temp decreased. Does this mean that the vaporization of cyclo. results in a lowering of freezing point?
THank you for your help.
