Solutions l.jpg


Solution l.jpg


  • A solution is a homogeneous mixture in which one substance is dissolved in another substance

Components of a solution l.jpg

Components of a solution

  • Two parts of a solution: the substance being dissolved (solute) and the substance doing the dissolving (solvent)

Aqueous solution l.jpg

Aqueous solution

  • Solutions in which the solvent is water are aqueous solutions (most common)

Tinctures l.jpg


  • A solution in which the solvent is alcohol is a tincture Ex: iodine tincture

Characteristics of a solution l.jpg

Characteristics of a solution

  • Mixture of two or more substances

  • light passes through it

  • particles are uniformly distributed

Ions and dissociation l.jpg

Ions and dissociation

  • Ions are atoms with a positive or negative charge

Electrolytes l.jpg


  • Solutions that conduct electricity are electrolytes (sodium chloride and silver nitrate)

Non electrolytes l.jpg


  • Non-electrolytes form solutions that do not conduct electricity (sugar, alcohol, benzene)

Questions l.jpg


  • What is a solution?

  • What are the two parts of a solution?

  • What are three properties of a solution?

Questions11 l.jpg


  • What’s the difference between an aqueous solution and a tincture

Question l.jpg


  • If you wanted to dissolve a substance in water as quickly as possible what could you do?

Ways to increase dissolving rate l.jpg

Ways to increase dissolving rate

  • In order to increase the rate in which a solution dissolves one could heat the solution, stir it, or crush the solute particles

Solubility l.jpg


  • The measure of how much solute can be dissolved in a solvent is solubility

What affects solubility l.jpg

What affects solubility?

  • The three main factors that affect solubility are temperature, type and the amount of the solvent

Effervescence fizz l.jpg

Effervescence (fizz)

  • The escape of a gas from a liquid is effervescence (example: soda and alka seltzer)

Concentration l.jpg


  • Concentration of a solution is the amount of solute that isdissolved in a solvent

Concentrated vs dilute l.jpg

Concentrated vs. dilute

  • A solution with a lot of solute dissolved is concentrated

  • A solution with a little solute dissolved is dilute

Types of solutions l.jpg

Types of solutions

  • A saturated solution contains all the solute it can possibly hold

  • An unsaturated solution contains less solute that is possible

Supersaturated solution l.jpg

Supersaturated solution

  • A supersaturated solution can be made to hold more solute than is normal

Question21 l.jpg


  • Compare a saturated, unsaturated, and a supersaturated solution

Questions22 l.jpg


  • What is solubility and what are the three factors that affect it?

  • What are three ways to increase the rate in which a solute dissolves?

Water l.jpg


  • Water is the universal solvent

  • A substance that cannot dissolve in water is insoluble

Polar vs non polar l.jpg

Polar vs. non-polar

  • A polar molecule has oppositely charged ends (+ and -)

  • Non-polar molecules have the same charges on its ends

Rule for dissolving solutes in a solvent l.jpg

Rule for dissolving solutes in a solvent

  • Like solutes dissolve in like solvents (polar in polar, non-polar in non-polar)

Hard water vs soft water l.jpg

Hard water vs. soft water

  • Hard water contains dissolved metal ions

  • Soft water does not contain dissolved metal ions

Freezing point depression l.jpg

Freezing point depression

  • Lowering the freezing point of a solution as a result of the dissolved solute (freezing point depression) Ex: antifreeze in water

Boiling point elevation l.jpg

Boiling point elevation

  • Raising the boiling point of a substance by adding solute (salt in water)

Questions29 l.jpg


  • What is the difference between polar and non-polar molecules?

  • What is the general rule for dissolving solutes?

Questions30 l.jpg


  • What is the difference between hard and soft water?

  • How does a solute affect the freezing point and the boiling point?

Suspension l.jpg


  • A suspension is a heterogeneous mixture in which the solute particles are large enough to be seen (solute is suspended)

Colloid l.jpg


  • A colloid is a homogeneous mixture that is not a true solution (does not separate, solute remains suspended)

Acids l.jpg


  • Properties of an acid: sour taste, affecting the color of indicators, turn litmus paper from blue to red, pH 1-6.9

Weak acids vs strong acids l.jpg

Weak acids vs. strong acids

  • Weak acids (pH 4 - 6.9)

  • Strong acids (pH about 1-3; common acids: sulfuric, hydrochloric, nitric, and acetic acids

Bases l.jpg


  • Bases are slippery, bitter taste, turn litmus paper from red to blue

  • pH 7.1-14

Bases36 l.jpg


  • Common bases potassium hydroxide, calcium hydroxide, sodium hydroxide, and ammonium hydroxide

Weak bases vs strong bases l.jpg

Weak bases vs. strong bases

  • Weak bases (7.1-10.9 pH)

  • Strong bases (11-14 pH)

Ph scale l.jpg

pH scale

  • Measures hydronium ion concentration (strength of the acid or base)

  • pH scale ranges from 0-14 (7 is the neutral point) water

Slide39 l.jpg


  • Salt is a compound formed when an acid is mixed with a base (positive ion from a base and a negative ion from an acid)

Neutralization l.jpg


  • A neutralization reaction occurs when an acid and a base combine to form salt and water

Precipitate l.jpg


  • A precipitate is an insoluble substance crystallizes out of solution (ex: salt from a neutralization reaction)

Precipitation reaction l.jpg

Precipitation reaction

  • The process of forming a precipitate is precipitation

Questions43 l.jpg


  • What is the pH scale used for?

  • What is the pH range for an acid, a base?

Questions44 l.jpg


  • What are some properties of an acid? Of a base?

  • Describe neutraliztion.

  • What is a salt?
