Q. 13.1.1

Answer the following questions about solutions. a. The solubility of silver sulfate in water is 5.05 g/L. If a silver sulfate solution has a concentration of 0.0474 g/L, is the solution saturated, unsaturated, or supersaturated? b. The liquids methyl alcohol and water dissolve in each other in all proportions. Are liquid methyl alcohol and water miscible or immiscible?


Verified Solution

You are asked to describe the nature of a solution.
You are given information about the solubility of a solute in a solvent or the characteristics of a solution made from two components.
a. The amount of solute dissolved in the solution is less than the solubility limit for the solid, so the solution is unsaturated. It is possible to dissolve additional solute in the solution.
b. The two liquids are miscible because they mix completely and form a homogeneous solution.
