How much of a solute dissolves in a solvent depends on how much solvent you use.
If you use more solvent to dissolve a solute, more solute should be added until the solution is saturated.
When you keep on adding the solute, one time you see the solute will remain undissolved at the bottom of the container. That is the time the solution will be saturated.
1) By using a warm solvent.
2) By heating the mixture.
When the solvent is warmed, the tiny particles it is made of move faster. This increases the spaces between them so that there is room for more solute to dissolve.
1) We can make the solute dissolve faster by heating the mixture.
2) We can make the solute dissolve faster by stirring the mixture.
3) We can make the solute dissolve faster by grinding the solute before it is put into the solvent.
Stirring mixes up the particles of solvent and solute so that they are more spread out.
Grinding or crushing the solute increases the area of it which is exposed to the solvent.February 5, 2013
