About This Chapter
Analysis for Salts in Water - Chapter Summary
Follow along with our expert science instructors to examine several methods for measuring and analyzing salts in water. The chapter's lessons break down salt solubility rules and explains the processes of spectroscopy, calorimetry and more. By the end of the chapter, you should be able to:
- Use salt solubility rules to predict chemical reaction outcomes
- Identify the sources of salts in water
- Make several stoichiometric calculations
- Evaluate the applications of spectroscopy and calorimetry in water sample analysis
- Recognize the different types of absorption spectroscopy
Each lesson comes with a short self-assessment quiz to help you retain the terms and concepts you've studied. You can quickly navigate to specific lesson topics on your course Dashboard and ask our instructors questions if they arise. Finally, we've made the chapter available to access 24/7, which allows you to study whenever you have free time.
1. Solubility of Common Salts: Predicting Reaction Outcomes
Ever wondered why some salts dissolve in water and others don't? In this lesson you will learn about some simple salt solubility rules. Using these rules, you will be able to predict the products of many chemical reactions.
2. Salts in Water: Sources & Measurement
Salt in water contains ions of metallic and non-metallic ions. In this lesson, we will investigate where the salt in water comes from. We will also discuss how to measure the concentration of salt in saltwater.
3. Mass-to-Mass Stoichiometric Calculations
Learn how to set up and make mole to mass, mass to mole and mass to mass stoichiometric calculations. Learn how the ratios of moles helps you compare and make calculations. Learn how to relate mole ratios to molar mass.
4. Water Sample Analysis: Colorimetry & Spectroscopy
Water samples are analyzed for quality and safety. Several of the analysis methods use colorimetry and spectroscopy. In this lesson we will learn how these method work.
5. Absorption Spectroscopy: Definition & Types
In this lesson, we'll learn about absorption spectroscopy. Read on to learn how this spectroanalytical procedure works, what it can be used for and different kinds of absorption spectroscopy, then test your knowledge with a quiz.
