Expressing Concentration
 
The concentration of a solution
 
is a macroscopic property,
 
represents the amount of solute dissolved in a unit amount of solvent or of solution, and
 
can be expressed in a variety of ways (qualitatively and quantitatively).
Qu
alitative Expressions of Concentration
 A solution can be qualitatively described as
B
 
dil
u
te
:
a solution that contains a small proportion of solute relative to solvent, or 
B
 
concentrated
:
a solution that contains a large proportion of solute relative tosolvent.
Semi-
Qu
antitative Expressions of Concentration
  A solution can be semi-quantitatively described as

a solution in which more solute will dissolve, or

rated
:
a solution in which no more solute will dissolve.The
solubility 
of a solute is the amount of solute that will dissolve in a given amountof solvent to produce a saturated solution. For example, at 0
o
C, we can dissolve amaximum of 35.7 g of solid NaCl in 100 mL of water (a saturated solution). Anyadditional solid NaCl that we add to the saturated solution simply falls to the bottom of the container and does not dissolve.
