Homework Help: Chemistry

Is dissolving salt in water an example of reversible?

I don't think so because once salt is in water, the water is not clear anymore. Pls help. thanks.

Yes, it is reversible. One ca physically separate the salt and water (evaporation)

What do you mean by not clear? When salt dissolves in water there is no turbidity and the solution is colorless. I don't believe you can look at two glasses of water, one with salt dissolved in it and the other with no salt, and distinguish between the two. Taste would tell you but not by vision alone.
