What is a saturated solution explain with an example?

A saturated solution is a solution that contains the maximum amount of solute that is capable of being dissolved. At 20°C, the maximum amount of NaCl that will dissolve in 100. g of water is 36.0 g. If any more NaCl is added past that point, it will not dissolve because the solution is saturated.

What do you mean by saturated solution?

A solution in which the maximum amount of solvent has been dissolved. Any more solute added will sit as crystals on the bottom of the container.

What is the evidence that a solution is saturated?

A SATURATED SOLUTION is a solution that contains the MAXIMUM AMOUNT of solute that the solvent can dissolve. The presence of excess solute which can no longer dissolve is an evidence that a solution is saturated.

What are the types of saturation?

Types of Saturation

Types of Saturation Definitions
Saturated Solution A saturated solution is a solution that is in equilibrium with respect to a given dissolved substance.
Unsaturated Solution A solution not in equilibrium with respect to a given dissolved substance and in which more substance can be dissolved.

How can you change a unsaturated solution to saturated without adding more solvent?

By increasing temperature A saturated solution can be changed into unsaturated solution (without adding solvent) by heating the solution. For instance when a saturated solution of sugar is heated to a higher temperature, it starts dissolving more sugar.

What are the similarities of saturated and supersaturated?

Both involves solute and solubility. Both depends on the amount of solute which will be dissolved or not dissolved.

What do you mean by saturated?

1 : full of moisture : made thoroughly wet. 2a : being a solution that is unable to absorb or dissolve any more of a solute at a given temperature and pressure. b : being an organic compound having no double or triple bonds between carbon atoms saturated fats.

What happens when a saturated solution of sugar is heated?

If a saturated solution is heated, then it becomes unsaturated because solubility of solute increases on heating.

What will happen when we add water into a saturated solution of glucose?

Since the solution was saturated, it couldn’t dissolve more sugar. Once the temperature drops, the water has a new saturation point (lower grams of sugar) and now discharges the sugar from its mass.
