Q. 50 A

(a) Differentiate between a saturated and an unsaturated solution. How will you test whether a given solution is saturated or not?

Answer :

Saturated Solution: When a solution cannot dissolve more solute at a given temperature, the point is called saturation point of the solution and solution is called saturated solution. This means, no more solute can be dissolved in a saturated solution at a given temperature.

Unsaturated Solution: Solution in which more solution can dissolved at a given temperature, is called unsaturated solution.


Example to test whether a given solution is saturated or not


At 25°C, 55 g of common salt dissolves in 100g of water. However, if more of common salt is added to the above solution, it just does not dissolve. In such a situation, the solution of common salt containing 55 gm of salt in 100 gm of water, is a saturated solution at 25°C
