Read carefully the quiestions. Make sure you understand what you are asked.
• It’s a liquid at room temperature
• It is transparent
• It may be salty or not
• Chemical formula: H20 (one molecule contains one atom of oxygen and 2 atoms
• Its essential for life
• Freezing point: 0ºC
• Boiling point: 100ºC
• Ice floats in liquid water
Saturated solution: a solution is saturated when it dissolves the maximum amount of
solute it can hold
Solubility: maximum amount of solute which 100 grams of water can hold at a given
Why do we have to state the temperature when we define solubility?
Because at more temperature water can contain more solute.
12g. of potassium chloride dissolve in 75g. of water at 60ºC
A 100g. of water at 60º can dissolve 16g. of potassium sulphate.
