Classification of Matter

Solutions are homogeneous mixtures


A solute is the dissolved substance in a solution.

Saltin salt water

Sugarin soda drinks

Carbon dioxide in soda drinks


A solvent is the dissolving medium in a solution.

Waterin salt water

Waterin soda

like dissolves like
“Like Dissolves Like”

Nonpolar solutesdissolve best in nonpolar solvents

Polar and ionic solutesdissolve best in polar solvents

water s solvent interactions
Water’s Solvent Interactions

The oxygen (slightly negative) end of the water molecule is attracted to the positive ion of a salt.

Water’s Solvent Interactions

The hydrogen (slightly positive) end of the water molecule is attracted to the negative ion of a salt.

solubility trends
Solubility Trends
  • The solubility of MOST solids increases with temperature.
  • The rate at which solids dissolve increases with increasing surface area of the solid.
  • The solubility of gases decreases with increases in temperature.
  • The solubility of gases increases with the pressure above the solution.

Solids tend to dissolve best when:

  • Heated
  • Stirred
  • Ground into small particles

Gasestend to dissolve best when:

  • The solution is cold
  • Pressure is high
definition of electrolytes and nonelectrolytes
Definition of Electrolytes and Nonelectrolytes

An electrolyte is:

  • A substance whose aqueous solution conducts an electric current.

A nonelectrolyte is:

  • A substance whose aqueous solution does not conduct an electric current.
electrolytes vs nonelectrolytes
Electrolytes vs. Nonelectrolytes

The ammeter measures the flow of electrons (current)

through the circuit.

If the ammeter measures a current, and the bulb

glows, then the solution conducts.

If the ammeter fails to measure a current, and the

bulb does not glow, the solution is non-conducting.

colligative properties
Colligative Properties

Colligative properties are those that depend on the concentration of particles in a solution, not upon the identity of those particles.

  • Boiling Point Elevation
  • Freezing Point Depression
  • Osmotic Pressure
freezing point depression
Freezing Point Depression

Each mole of solute particles lowers the freezing point of 1 kilogram of water by 1.86 degrees Celsius.

Boiling Point Elevation

Each mole of nonvolatile solute particles raises the boiling point of 1 kilogram of water by 0.51 degrees Celsius.
