Definitions for "Colligative property"
Any property that depends on the number of solute particles in a solution but not their identity.
property of a solution that depends on the concentration of the solute particles but is independent of the nature of the particles; boiling point elevation, freezing point depression, and vapor pressure lowering are colligative properties.
colligative; colligative properties. Properties of a solution that depend on the number of solute molecules present, but not on the nature of the solute. Osmotic pressure, vapor pressure, freezing point depression, and boiling point elevation are examples of colligative properties.
