9.  Sucrose is a covalent compound and does not split up in water.  Therefore there are no ions presents so the electrical conductivity is low, and there are relatively few particles present so the freezing point depression is not as great.

Formic acid and sodium formate are both electrolytes, but judging from their electrical conductivity, the formic acid must not dissociate 100% (or at least not as much as the sodium formate).  Therefore, there are fewer particles present and it has less of a freezing point depression.

10.  A.  C3H2Cl
        B.  147.3 g/mol
        C.  .937
        D.  140.6 mmHg

11. A.   The pure water level will decrease because it has a higher vapor pressure when compared to the sugar solution.  Eventually, all of the water will be transferred into the sugar solution.

B.  As the pressure drops, the boiling point of the water will drop.  If the water is warm enough, it will begin to boil.

12.  A.  Both compounds are non polar, therefore both are affected only by London Dispersion Forces.  LDF's are stronger with bigger atoms, so CBr4 has larger LDF's, therefore it is harder to separate into a gas, therefore it has a higher boiling point.

    B.  NaI is ionic (and therefore polar) while I2 is non polar.  Water is a polar solvent.  Polar solvents tend to dissolve polar solutes, thus, NaI is very soluble while I2 is not.
