Ch 6: Mixtures & Solutions in Chemistry

About This Chapter

Develop your understanding of mixtures and solutions in chemistry with this overview that includes distillation, solvent extraction, and solubility of a compound in water. These short lessons are a handy resource for individuals preparing for an exam.

Mixtures & Solutions in Chemistry - Chapter Summary

This chapter includes lessons on mixtures and solutions in chemistry. You will review solvent extortion and stoichiometry. You will also gain a better understanding of how to calculate relative quantities in a gas or solution. After completing the chapter, you should feel confident and ready to:

  • Define terms related to solutions, solutes, and solvents
  • Explain the process of distillation
  • Discuss fractional distillation
  • Describe how solvent extraction separates compounds
  • Identify solubility of a compound in water
  • Set up stoichiometric calculations with gases

Each lesson on mixtures and solutions in chemistry is accompanied by a brief quiz to assess how much of the content and details you can recall. You can review only the topics you need to review and print the quiz in worksheet form to use as a study guide.

Solutions, Solutes, and Solvents

1. Solutions, Solutes, and Solvents

Oh no! Your friend Ben just drank chili oil on a dare, and now his mouth is burning. Should he drink the ice water or vegetable oil to cool his mouth? Quick. Watch this lesson if you aren't sure.

What Is Distillation? - Definition, Process & Apparatus

2. What Is Distillation? - Definition, Process & Apparatus

Explore distillation, the chemist's most useful method for separating substances dissolved in liquids. We cover the cycle of vaporization, cooling, and condensation that is the basis for the process. You will also learn what laboratory apparatus you need to perform the procedures involved.

What is Fractional Distillation? - Definition & Process

3. What is Fractional Distillation? - Definition & Process

Did you know that fractional distillation is commonly practiced by oil refineries using crude oil for the production of gasoline fuel? In this lesson, learn more about this fascinating process.

Solvent Extraction: Definition & Process

4. Solvent Extraction: Definition & Process

This lesson will define solvent extraction and discuss and explain the process. It will derive the expression of distribution coefficient and work out some related mathematical problems.

Solubility of a Compound in Water

5. Solubility of a Compound in Water

Water is a great solvent! In this lesson, we will learn why water is such a great solvent. We will also learn how to tell if a compound will dissolve in water.

Stoichiometry: Calculating Relative Quantities in a Gas or Solution

6. Stoichiometry: Calculating Relative Quantities in a Gas or Solution

In this lesson, learn about molar volume and how to set up and make stoichiometric calculations with gases. Then learn about solution stoichiometry and how to make stoichiometric calculations with solutions.
