Table salt has a solubility of 36 g of salt in 100 g of water at 40°C. If 15 g of the salt are added to 50 g of water at the same temperature, is the resulting solution saturated or unsaturated? Explain your answer.
15g salt/50 g is equivalent to 30gsalt/100gwater.
so is that above, or below the saturated level?
I am really confused on this too. I'm pretty sure you come from Connections Academy. What I did was gon on google and search saturated and unsaturated. It should help a bit?
The resulting solution is saturated because 86 is what equals both of the grams of salt added to the water at degrees C. 15 g + 50 g = 86 grams
