ABSTRACT
A definition of the term "Raoult's law" is presented. It refers to a theory in Chemistry. The theory has been named after French chemist FranÇois Marie Raoult who was Professor of Chemistry at Grenoble. The law states that for solutions of non-electrolytes, the elevation of the boiling point, the depression of the freezing point and the lowering of the vapour pressure are proportional to the mole fraction of the solute.
