Title Salts and Solubility 2: Solubility (Inquiry Based)
Description I have written a series of five activities using the Soluble Salts simulation to be used throughout the year. This is the second activity in the series. I plan to use this in the second unit as part of the Composition of Solution (section 4.3). Learning Goals: Students will be able to: Write the dissolving reaction for salts. Describe a saturated solution microscopically and macroscopically with supporting illustrations. Calculate solubility in grams/100ml. Distinguish between soluble salts and slightly soluble salts macroscopically.
