Title Saturated Solutions - Interactive Lecture Demonstration
Description This Interactive Lecture Demonstration Guide has the following goals. Students will be able to:(1) Compare and describe saturated and unsaturated solutions at the particle-level, and in terms of macroscopic observations; (2) Explain how and whether changes in solute amount and changes in volume affect the concentration of unsaturated and saturated solutions; and (3) Relate the maximum concentration of saturated solutions (at a particular temperature) to the identity of the solute.
