Solubility Lab
Purpose:
The main purpose of doing this lab is to learn how to interpret solubility graphs and how the temperature does affects the solubility of different substances. There are other objectives of the lab which are learning what are concentrated, diluted, supersaturated, and saturated substances and how can they be identified. The hypothesis of this lab would be that when temperature increases, the amount of salt and copper sulfate that can be added in the water and be dissolved will increase.

Theory:
The hypothesis will be proven because when temperature is increased, energy is released and this energy breaks the forces that held up the atoms together of a substance. This being said, then when the temperature in a mixture increases, then the solute will be able to dissolve completely and each time temperature is increased, there should be more amount of solute that can be added. When the solute is saturated, then a precipitate will form and crystals should start appearing.

Procedures:
Day 1: 1) Place 15.00 grams of salt in a beaker (Measure it out exactly) 2) To the beaker with the salt, add 100mL of distilled water and add a thermometer. 3) Dissolve the water in a hot water bath. Remove the beaker from the bath as the first crystals begin to appear and record the temperature. The solution is saturated at this point. 4) Add an extra 10g of salt and repeat step 3 to the above solution.
Day 2: 1) Put 25mL of water at room temperature in a beaker. 2) To this beaker with the water add 60g of sugar. 3) Repeat steps 3 and 4 from Day 1, add 10g of sugar in each trial. 4) For each trial just add sugar do not add water.

Data:
Day 1: 15 g salt no crystals 25 g salt no crystals 35 g salt non-dissolved amount of salt in beaker
Day 2: 1 g copper sulfate

    n this lab experiment factors that affected solubility are temperature, liquids, concentration, pressure, polarity, and molecule. In this experiment we use temperature, centrifuge, and concentration solutions to be able to achieve the results that we wanted. Step one of the experiment was to mix HCl, to cause a precipitation form, after that we had to decant the solution, then we used a centrifuged to separate the the precipitate of the supernatant liquid. After the decant was done, then the process…

    1. Provide a general discussion of the solubility/miscibility behavior observed in procedure A-D. For part A of the procedure we worked with the solubility of solid compounds in various solvents. The three solid compounds that were worked with during this procedure were benzophenone, malonic acid, and biphenyl. These three solids were then mixed with water (highly polar), methyl alcohol (intermediately polar), and hexanes (nonpolar). When benzophenone is mixed with water the results turned out to…

    In part 1 the results of the solubility do not agree with the with rules of solubility most likely because we put too much solid in the test tubes and not enough water to dissolve it. They should have dissolved because the anything with nitrate should be soluble. With the pH, when the mixture where compared with the chart all of them except NaCl where a shade of blue which means that they have a pH of 8-14, depending on the darkness of the shade, meaning that they are a basic solution.

    Introduction: Solubility equilibrium refers to the dissolution of a compound in water. Specifically, the degree to which a compound is soluble (Tro, 739). This can be measured using the expression Ksp = [Mb+]a[Xa-]b, in which Ksp represents the solubility product constant (Thorne, 90). This constant is important because it does not change at a given temperature, regardless of the solution a compound is in; a smaller constant would indicate lower overall solubility. It is important to note that…

    Solubility and Functional Groups _______________________________________________________ You will recall from general chemistry that a solution has two components: the solvent, which is the substance present in greater amount, and the solute, which is dissolved in the solvent. Solubility is defined as the mass (in grams) of solute dissolved in 100 g of solute at saturation. Molar solubility is defined as the amount (in moles) of solute per liter of saturated solution. The solubility of one compound…

    Solubility Product Determination Purpose • To determine the solubility product constant, Ksp, of an ionic compound. Introduction The solubility product constant, Ksp, is a particular type of equilibrium constant. The equilibrium is formed when an ionic solid dissolves in water to form a saturated solution. The equilibrium exists between the aqueous ions and the undissolved solid. A saturated solution contains the maximum concentration of ions of the substance that can dissolve at…
