What is super saturated?
Supersaturated = Being more concentrated than normally possible and therefore not in equilibrium.
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 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!
Dissolve the copper sulphate powder in water and make a saturated solution, then warm it & dissolve more copper sulphate powder in the same (saturated) solution till it become super saturated solution. Filter this super saturated solution through a filter paper immediately. allow the filterate to cool at room temperature, crystals of copper sulphate will develop.
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.
A solution that does not allow any more solute to dissolve (at room temperature) is called a SATURATED SOLUTION. But a saturated solution can be made to dissolve more solute by heating it. Then it is called a super saturated solution. The solvent becomes saturated and the no more solute will disolve
A super saturated solution is unstable, and wants to precipitate some solute to regain a stable situation. Dissolve something in water at a high temperature in a perfectly clean glass container, until no more dissolves. Cool slowly and the solution becomes unstable because it holds more in solution than is normal at equilibrium at that lower temperature. It is super saturated. A tiny speck of dust or even agitation can provide conditions where the excess…
A solution is one in which the maximum amount of dissolved solute can be held in a given amount of solvent?
A solution that has the maximum amount of solute dissolved at that temperature is known as a saturated solution. However it is possible to prepare a super saturated solution by heating the solution slightly, dissolving the maximum amount of solute and then carefully cooling the solution. Generally the super saturated solution is unstable and the excess solute will precipitate out if given the energy to do so. A common super saturated solution is a sugar…
This is a super saturated solution. It is produced by first heating the solution, dissolving more solute and then carefully cooling the solution. It is generally a temporary state as with a small amount of energy input like knocking the container or seeding like sprinkling tiny crystals or dust particles it will re crystallise. A common example of a super saturated solution is toffee.
A saturated solution is holding as much solute in solution as it possibly can, which means that there is little to no crystals at the bottom of the container. A saturated solution depends on the solute (the thing you are dissolving in water) and the amount, temperature, and pressure of the water itself. So there is no EXAMPLE of a saturated solution since saturation is conditional. In every day life really sweet tea is an…
