What type of mixture is a solution? Homogeneous

What does solubility measure? The ability of a substance to dissolve
When something CAN dissolve, we say it is? Soluble
When something can NOT dissolve, we say it is? Insoluble
What are the 2 parts of every solution? Solute & Solvent
Which part of a solution is there more of? Solvent
Which part of a solution is there less of? Solute
Which part of a solution is STIRRED INTO something? Solute
Which part of solution allows matter MIXED INTO IT? Solvent
Which part of a solution is DISSOLVED? Solute
Which part of a solution does the dissolving? Solvent
How much solute does a DILUTE solution dissolve? Very little
How much solute does a CONCENTRATED solution dissolve? A lot
What are 3 things you could do a solution in order to increase the rate at which the solute dissolves? 1. Stir it 2. Increase the temperature 3. Increase surface area
How can you increase the surface area? Crush it up
What is the universal solvent? Water
Why is water the universal solvent? Its the solvent most commonly used
how would you classify a solution that has dissolved more solute than it normally can at a given temperature? Supersaturated
How would you classify a solution that can not dissolve any more solute at a given temperature? Saturated
How can you tell when a solution is saturated? No more solute can dissolve
What will happen to any extra solute you add to a saturated solution? It will sink to the bottom and NOT dissolve
How would you classify a silute solution? unsaturated
What happens to the amount of solute able to dissolve as the solvents temperature increases? Increases
Why will more solute dissolve at greater temperatures? As the waters temperature increases, the atoms move faster and spread farther apart, making more spaces for the solute to dissolve.
