In reference to water saturation can mean a few things. It could mean the dew point of the atmosphere at which it can no longer hold any more moisture. It could mean that the water holds the maximum amount of thermal energy before boiling. It could also mean that so much of a solute is dissolved in the water and at its current temperature cannot hold any more solute.Saturation is the point at which a material cannot absorb any more of something else. When a piece of cloth is saturated with water, it can hold no more water. When you are trying to dissolve something in water, such as salt, the water is saturated when no more salt can go into solution.

The zone of saturation and the water table share two zones of ground water.

Saturation points remain the same, water start to vaporize.

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 called the saturation point. The saturation point of salt in water is 35g / 100ml water.

citric acid reaches its saturation point after about 45 grams of citric acid and 50 ml of water

Saturation is reached when the ground can no longer absorb rain water. Flooding is usually the result.

an example of saturation is a wet sponge. if you fill the wet sponge up with water and place it on the counter and come back and 5 min. you may notice a puddle of water. this is because the sponge can only hold so much water, it has reached its saturation point.

Cold water can dissolve less salt than can hot water. Therefore, you would reach the saturation point faster with cold water.

No, a zone of saturation forms when water fills the pires in rocks

The water table is a line beneath the surface of the earth. Beneath this line the rocks and soil are saturated with water. This area is called the zone of saturation.

how would you find the saturation point of teaspoons of salt in half a litre of water

An aquifer is a zone of saturation that is used by inhabitants as a water supply. An aquifer is a body of saturated rock through which water can easily move through.

The zone of saturation is right above the water table. I'm cute and hot. call me at 760 555 2377

The zone of saturation would not be completely solid. However, the pore spaces would be filled with water.

the saturation point of sugar in room temperature is a 2 to 1 ratio and for the saturation point of sugar in boiling water is a 1 to 1 ratio! Hope this helps :( !!!!! what does that mean by the ratios

Depends on oxygen saturation. Generally, the oxygen saturation in water is about 10% that of the oxygen saturation in air. But this varies on every part of the world. In LA the saturation is lower than what would be in other areas because of pollution. In areas that arent yet habited by fish may have a higher saturation than that of a body of water that is habited by fish.

Where they meet is the water table.
