How do you tell if a solution is super saturated?
if you put your testes in my vagina :P hahhaha
A saturated solution is more stable than a super saturated one. The reason for this is because the super saturated solution has an extra amount of solute. If you tap, poke, shake or put anything else in the supersaturated solution, the extra solute (that was used to reach super saturation) will crystallize. Hope this helped!
A saturated solution contains exactly the maximum amount of solute that is stable dissolved in a solvent. In a saturated solution, it is not possible to dissolve any more solute. On the other hand, a super-saturated solution contains more solute than a solvent can hold normally. Super saturated solutions will thus precipitate some solute when disturbed or provided with nucleation centers.
A saturated solution contains all the dissolved solute that it can have in a stable state; a supersaturated solution has more dissolved solute than the amount that constitutes a saturated solution, and as a result it is not stable. If the solution is perturbed in some way, there will be a precipitation of the solute.
