About This Chapter
Measurement of Solubility & Concentration - Chapter Summary
How is solubility determined? What does 'solution concentration' refer to? What is solubility constant? These are some of the major topics you will have the opportunity to explore when you use the lessons contained in this chapter.
Short video and text lessons present examples and illustrations that clarify this information and make it easy to remember. After completing your review of this chapter, you should be able to:
- Define 'saturated', 'unsaturated' and 'supersaturated'
- Relate how pressure and temperature affect solubility
- Understand solubility constants and how to interpret them
- Calculate the concentration of a solution
Short 5-10 minute lessons and 24/7 accessibility make it simple and quick to review this information and self-assessment quizzes allow you to determine how much you have retained. Instructors are experts in the field and can be contacted easily with any lesson-specific questions. Use your Dashboard to track your progress through this chapter.
1. Solubility and Solubility Curves
Learn what solubility is as well as the definitions of 'saturated,' 'unsaturated' and 'supersaturated.' Learn how to determine the solubility of a substance in water by using a solubility curve. Discover the effects of pressure and temperature on the solubility of liquids, solids and gases.
2. Solubility Equilibrium: Using a Solubility Constant (Ksp) in Calculations
Learn the definition of solubility and solubility constant (Ksp) in this lesson. Interpret solubility constants and make calculations involving the dissociation of a slightly soluble compound given molar solubility.
3. Concentration of Solutions: Definition & Levels
In this lesson, we learn about solutions and what makes up a solution. We also look at solution concentration levels and how to calculate the concentration of a solution.
