Chemists consider a situation in which an ethanol producer needs to determine how much to add to t-butanol to prevent freezing during transport. They work in the laboratory to obtain the freezing point depression constant for the t-butanol. They graph the temperature changes and answer questions on the provided lab sheet. This is an outstanding application of freezing point concepts to a real-life scenario.
