Solubility

Solvent - the liquid that the 'stuff' is dissolved in

Solute - the 'stuff' that's dissolved

Solubility - no. of grams of the solute that dissolve in 100g of the solvent at a particular temperature

The solubility of solutes usually increases with temperature

Saturated solution - can't hold any more solid at that temperature

A solubility curve plots the mass of solute dissolved in a saturated solution at various temperatures

Solubility of most solids increases with temperature

Meaning that when a saturated solution is…
