' Solubility Calculations

1. Calculate the maximum number of grams of each solute that can be dissolved; b) sodium chloride in 1250 um3
c) sodium nitrate in 50 crag
a) potassium nitrate in 300 cm3
of water at 400 C.
of water at 0° C.
of water at 80° C.



2. Calculate the minimum volume of water needed to dissolve; b) 10.0 g of potassium nitrate
a) 500 g of sodium chloride
in water at 0° C.
in water at 100° C.

c) 1.00 kg of sodium nitrate
in water at 50° C.


3. Calculate the temperature the water must be to just dissolve;

a) 80.0 g of potassium nitrate
in 200 cm3 of water.

b) 60.0 g of potassium nitrate
in 50 cm3 of water.


4. Calculate the mass of precipitate in each case below;
a) a saturated solution of sodium nitrate
in 400 cm3 of water at 100° C is made.
The temperature i s then changed to 13° C.

c) 500.0 g of sodium nitrate
in 500 cm3 of water.


b) a saturated solution of potassium nitrate
in 250 cm3 of water at 80° C is made.
The temperature is then changed to 8° C.


3. The dissolving of both salt and sugar involves the solid separating into particles too small to see. The salt solution contains ions of sodium and chlorine and will conduct a current, while the sugar dissolves to release sugar molecules, so its solution will not conduct electricity.
