What is occurring at the molecular level when no more solute will dissolve in a certain amount of solvent at a given temperature?

Bell RingerTuesday, 3-22-11

The number of molecules leaving crystals of the solute equals the number of molecules returning and sticking to the crystals.dissolution = crystallization

  • If more water is added to the saturated solution, then more sodium chloride will dissolve in it.
  • At 20°C, 35.9 g of NaCl is the maximum amount that will dissolve in 100 mL of water.
  • A solution that contains less solute than a saturated solution under the existing conditions is an unsaturated solution.
  • When a saturated solution of a solute whose solubility increases with temperature is cooled, the excess solute usually comes out of solution, leaving the solution saturated at the lower temperature.
  • But sometimes, if the solution is left to cool undisturbed, the excess solute does not separate and a supersaturated solution is produced.
  • A supersaturated solution is a solution that contains more dissolved solute than a saturated solution contains under the same conditions.
  • A supersaturated solution may remain unchanged for a long time if it is not disturbed, but once crystals begin to form, the process continues until equilibrium is reestablished at the lower temperature.
  • The solubility of a substance is the amount of that substance required to form a saturated solution with a specific amount of solvent at a specified temperature.
    • Ex) the solubility of sugar is 204 g/100 g of water (at 20.°C.)
  • The temperature must be specified because solubility varies with temperature.
    • For gases, the pressure must also be specified.
  • Solubility values can be found in chemical handbooks and are usually given as grams of solute per 100. g of solvent or per 100. mL of solvent at a given temperature.
  • The rate at which a solid dissolves is unrelated to solubility - the maximum amount of solute that dissolves and reaches equilibrium is always the same under the same conditions.
