Homework Help: SCIENCE

Posted by DrBob222 on Monday, December 11, 2006 at 9:20am.

(aq) means the solution is dissolved in water used as a solvent. (l) means the COMPOUND (not element, usually) is a pure liquid. (g) means gas and (s) means solid.
In the equation below,
HCl(aq) + NaOH(aq) -->NaCl(aq) + H2O(l)This means that an aqueous solution of HCl is mixed with an aqueous solution of NaOH. The products are an aqueous solution of NaCl and pure water. (Of course the water isn't pure anymore when mixed with the aqueous solution of NaCl but I guess that is obvious.)



What is the difference between (aq) and (l) ...what do they mean.
I know Aq is a aueous solution while (l) is a liguid with only one element...but what is the difference between them?
thanks

A solution in which water is the dissolving medium or solvent. It's a solute dissolved in water
