Chem Test Ch. 13

Chapter 13

TermDefinition
Pure Sustance A material that is composed of only one type of particle; examples of a pure substance include gold, oxygen and water.
Mixture A material made up of at least two different pure substances.
Solution homogeneous mixture composed of two or more substances
heterogeneous and homogeneous solutions A homogeneous mixture has the same uniform appearance and composition throughout. Many homogeneous mixtures are commonly referred to as solutions. A heterogeneous mixture consists of visibly different substances or phases.
suspension a heterogeneous mixture containing solid particles that are sufficiently large for sedimentation. Usually they must be larger than one micrometer.
colloid a solution that has particles ranging between 1 and 1000 nanometers in diameter, yet are still able to remain evenly distributed throughout the solution.
solute and solvent solute is a substance dissolved in another substance, known as a solvent.
aqueous solution a solution in which the solvent is water.
molarity The number of moles of solute (the material dissolved) per liter of solution. Used to express the concentration of a solution.
solubility a chemical property referring to the ability for a given substance, the solute, to dissolve in a solvent.
soluble and insoluble soluble - capable of being dissolved in some solvent (usually water) insoluble -incapable of being dissolved
miscible and immiscible immiscible- Incapable of being mixed or blended together. Immiscible liquids that are shaken together eventually separate into layers. Oil and water are immiscible. miscible-liquids mix together well
"Like dissolves like" an expression used by chemists to remember how some solvents work. It refers to "polar" and "nonpolar" solvents and solutes. Basic example: Water is polar. Oil is non polar. Water will not dissolve oil.
unsaturated a chemical compound that contains carbon-carbon double bonds or triple bonds, such as those found in alkenes or alkynes, respectively.
saturated a chemical compound that has a chain of carbon atoms linked together by single bonds. Alkanes are saturated hydrocarbons.
supersaturated A solution that contains a higher than saturation concentration of solute; slight disturbance or seeding causes crystallization of excess solute.
dissociation a general process in which molecules (or ionic compounds such as salts, or complexes) separate or split into smaller particles such as atoms, ions or radicals, usually in a reversible manner.
Henry's law gas law "At a constant temperature, the amount of a given gas that dissolves in a given type and volume of liquid is directly proportional to the partial pressure of that gas in equilibrium with that liquid."

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.
