Is it appropriate to call a soft drink an aqueous solution? Justify your answer
I think so. Isn't everything in solution? Including the gas? I don't see any solids floating around in a soft drink. You might thing it isn't a "normal" solution because the gas is dissolved due to the high pressure. With that thought in might you might think we should call it a saturated solution in the gas (at least at the high pressure). As soon as the cap comes off the pressure leaves becasue the excess gas escapes.
Sorry Dr Bob, I am not here to get my homework done, I am trying to compare answers like my answer for this question was
A soft drink is an aqueous solution, a solution is a homogeneous mixture of 2 or more substances. In the case of pepsi, it is the aqueous solution, the solvent is H2O and the solute is sugar and CO2.
