You will discover how the concentration of various substances can be calculated. You will also prepare a solution using the data obtained by calculating mass fraction and mass percentage.
After completing this tutorial, you will be able to complete the following:
Solubility is the property of a solid, liquid, or gas, called a solute, to dissolve in a liquid solvent to form a homogeneous solution. The solubility of a substance in a solvent changes as the temperature of the solution changes. As temperature rises, typically the solubility of solids in liquids becomes higher. When no more solute can be dissolved in the solvent, the solution's saturation point has been reached. As a solution reaches its saturation point at various temperatures, these data points can be plotted on a graph to draw a solubility curve. Solutions can have multiple solubility curves depending on the solute and solvent that make the solution. Solubility data can be used to identify unknown substances because solubility is a characteristic property of any substance.
