Problem

The solubility of MnSO4 2 O in water at 20 oC is 70 g per 100 mL of water.

Given a solution of MnSO4 2 O of unknown concentration, what experiment could you perform to determine whether the new solution is saturated, supersaturated, or unsaturated?

Solution

Solutions, based on how much solute they contain, can be classified into three groups:


Unsaturated: This is a solution that contains an amount of solute less than the maximum amount that the solvent can hold.

Saturated: This solution holds the maximum amount of solute that is capable of being dissolved.

Supersaturated: A solution that holds more solute that can be dissolved under normal circumstances.
