What happens when a solution becomes saturated?
Regarding this, why must the solution be saturated when its solubility is determined?
A solution with the maximum possible amount of solute is saturated. Because the solubility of most solids increases with increasing temperature, a saturated solution that was prepared at a higher temperature usually contains more dissolved solute than it would contain at a lower temperature.
Likewise, what happens when a saturated solution is heated? If a saturated solution is heated, then it becomes unsaturated because solubility of solute increases on heating. If a saturated solution is cooled, then some of its dissolved solute will separate out in the form of solid crystals.
Beside this, when a saturated solution is diluted it turns into?
How are the terms dilute and saturated related to the concept of concentration? Sometimes, a solution contains more dissolved solute than is normally possible. This type of solution is said to be supersaturated. A saturated solution can become supersaturated if more solute is added while the temperature is raised.
What is an example of supersaturated solution?
A supersaturated solution is a solution that contains more solute than what the solvent can dissolve. In case you haven't taught what a solute/solvent is, a solute is the substance that is dissolved IN the solution, such as salts (but not limited to salts). The most common example is the supersaturated Sodium Acetate.
