I assume you mean sodium chloride salt (NaCl). In that case, you would refer to the solubility of sodium chloride in water which is 35.7 grams per 100 mL of water at 0� C. However, this amount will be increased to approximately 39 g/100mL if the water is brought to boiling. If the solution is pressurized then the water may reach temperatures far above its boiling point and conversely the amount of NaCl which can be dissolved would increase far beyond its standard pressure and temperature saturation point. Salts are an ionic compounds that more specifically dissociate in water rather than dissolve. Sodium chloride forms a sodium cation (Na+) and the chlorine anion (Cl-) when it dissociates in water.

How much salt is in salt water?

Seawater has a salinity of arround 3.5 percent. So, 1 liter or 1000 milliliters or 1000 cubic centimeters freshwater needs 35 grams of salt to make "seawater".

What is the saturation point of salt water?

If you add salt to water it becomes dissolved. If you keep adding salt in to the water, eventually the water won't be able to hold any more salt. When that happens it is calle

Is salt water saturated?

A solvent is 'saturated' if it contains as much solute as possible given its current temperature. You will know that saltwater is saturated if you add a bit more salt, stir it

Why can you add more salt to heated water before it saturates?

As water is heated, it expands. This larger volume means there's more room to fit salt in between the molecules. Also, the added heat energy allows the water molecules to fit

Is salt mix in water a saturated solution?

When you first mix the salt into the solution the salt will dissolve into the water. As you keep on pouring more salt into the water eventually the salt will stop dissolving a
