UNIT 3-SOLUTIONS & SOLUBILITY

CHAPTER 6-THE NATURE & PROPERTIES OF SOLUTIONS 6.1 Defining A Solution
SOLUTIONS – homogenous mixtures of substances composed of one solute and one solvent. SOLUTE – a substance that gets dissolved in a solvent. SOLVENT – the medium in which the solute gets dissolved in. - often is a liquid e.g. water, paint thinner, etc. HOMOGENOUS MIXTURE – a uniform mixture consisting of only one phase - usually clear HETEROGENOUS MIXTURE – a mixture where one can see distinct phases - usually opaque or translucent (cloudy) - e.g. oil in water, salad dressing, etc. SOLUTE IN SOLVENT Gas in Gas Gas in Liquid Gas in Solid Liquid in Gas Liquid in Liquid Liquid in Solid Solid in Liquid Solid in Solid EXAMPLE OF SOLUTION Oxygen in Nitrogen(air) Oxygen in Water Oxygen in Ice Water in Air Methanol in Water(anti-freeze) Mercury in Silver(tooth fillings) Sugar in Water(syrup) Tin in Copper(bronze)

needle on ohmmeter moves  light does not glow. needle does not move LITMUS TEST blue litmus paper turns red red litmus paper turns blue  no change in colour of litmus paper  ELECTROLYTE NON-ELECTROLYTE TYPE OF SOLUTION ACIDIC BASIC NEUTRAL .g.a chemical formula representing a solution specifies the solute by using its chemical formula and shows the solvent by using a subscript. (1) NH3(aq) – ammonia gas (Solute) dissolved in water(solvent) (2) I2(al) – solid iodine(solute) dissolved in alcohol(solvent)   all aqueous solutions have water as the solvent and are clear (transparent)  compounds can be classified as either electrolytes or nonelectrolytes  compounds are electrolytes if their aqueous solutions conduct electricity and compounds are non-electrolytes if their aqueous solutions do not conduct electricity.  electrolytes are mostly highly soluble ionic compounds most molecular compounds are non-electrolytes except for acids PROPERTIES OF SOLUTES & THEIR SOLUTIONS TYPE OF SOLUTE CONDUCTIVITY TEST  light on conductivity apparatus glows. e.

H can be covalently bonded – N -O -F  any of these compounds can “hydrogen bond” to their own molecules to increase the intermolecular forces more than either London Dispersion forces or dipole-dipole forces.g. 6.g.HOMEWORK: P. 269 & 270 #’s 1-8. e. . ethylene glycol is a polar molecule which has a high solubility(which also is polar)  the theoretical explanation is that “polar molecules are surrounded and suspended in solution by polar solvent molecules”  remember in Chapter 2…….2 Explaining Solutions  when we look at polar & non-polar solutes we generally find that “like dissolves like” e.

its particles separated from each other and dispersed into the solution  he further explained that electrically charged particles must be present in their solutions e. NaCl(s) --- Na(aq) + + Cl(aq) and (NH4 )2 SO4(s) -- 2NH4(aq) + + SO4(aq)  when an ionic compound dissolves we say that the compound dissociates into individual aqueous ions DO #’s 6 & 7 on p.g. considerable capacity for hydrogen bonding Do #’s 9-12 on pages 279 & 280. small size 2. many more ionic compounds dissolve in water than any other solvent  in Sweden. highly polar nature 3. 1. 278 & 279. Arrhenius studying electrolytes proposed a hypothesis that when a substance dissolved. . Why do polar solutes dissolve in non-polar solvents?  they do not show evidence of polar molecules (dipoles) or  hydrogen bonding  we would then have to look at London Dispersion Forces which are weak intermolecular forces WATER = “UNIVERSAL SOLVENT”  due to its.

3 Solution Concentration  because many solutions are colourless.6. we need to know the amount of solute that is present  we use a ratio called the concentration Concentration = Quantity of Solute Quantity of Solvent  if the concentration is high.0% V/V 2. consumer products commonly use “percent weight by volume” or % W/V  . we say that we have a dilute solution Percentage Concentration – 1. What is the percentage by volume concentration of acetic acid? A: cacetic acid = 140mL x 100% 500mL = 28. c= Vsolute x 100% Vsolution Concentration is expressed as % V/V or percentage by volume c= concentration Vsolute = volume of solute Vsolution = volume of the solution Sample Problem 1 Q: A photographic “Stop Bath” contains 140mL of pure acetic acid in a 500mL bottle of solution. we say that we have a concentrated solution  if the concentration is low.

e. 1ppm=1g/106 mL =1g/1000L = 1mg/L = 1mg/1kg = 1μg/g .0g x 100% c= 92. “percent weight by weight” or % W/W c=msolute x 100% msolution Sample Problem 2 Q: A sterling silver ring has a mass of 12. you often express concentration as parts per million (ppm) or 1:106  we can express this depending on the units we are working with i.1g of pure silver. Hydrogen Peroxide.0g and contains 11. What is the percentage weight by weight concentration of silver in the metal? A: mAg =11.0g c=11.5% W/W Therefore the ring is 92.1g malloy =12.1g 12.e. H2 O2 . etc. c=msolute x 100% vsolution 3.5% silver.e.g. may be 3% W/V which means 3g of H2 O2 is in every 100mL of solution cH2O2 = 3g/100mL=3% W/V i. Very Low Concentrations  very low concentrations(dilute concentrations) are expressed using reasonable numbers for very small quantities of solute  in the environment of swimming pools.

What mass of fructose (C6 H12 O6 ) is present in a 175mL glass of juice? A: cC6H12O6 =12g/100mL V=175mL msolute =c x vsolution =12g/100mL x 175mL =21g Therefore there are 21g of fructose in a 175mL glass of apple juice.186mol/0.250L = 0.0g? Assume that the apple juice has a sugar concentration of 12g/100mL (12% W/V) and that the sugar in apple juice is fructose. if their sugar allowance for that beverage was 9. you might have to use the concentration ratio (quantity of solute/quantity of solution) as a conversion factor. Sample Problem 5 Q: A box of apple juice has a fructose concentration of 12g/100mL (12%W/V). A: cC6H12O6 =12g/100mL mC6H12O6 =9.
