Solutions A solution is a homogeneous mixture of two or more substances. If I look at any microscopic portion of the solution, it will have the same composition as any other portion. A solution contains a solvent and one or more solutes. The solvent determines the state of the solution. If the solvent is a gas, the solution is a gas. If the solvent is a liquid, the solution is a liquid. If the solvent is a solid, the solution is a solid.

Solutions (cont.) The solvent can be a gas, a liquid or a solid. The solute(s) can be gaseous, liquid or solid.

Solutions (cont.) It is necessary to specify the solution composition. i.e. we must specify the relative amounts of solvent and solute in a solution. There are many ways to specify solution composition Molarity (M) Molality (c m ) Mole fraction ( ) Mass % And others

Molarity (M) Molarity of a solute, A • M A = n soluteA /V solution “moles of solute per liter of solution” Solution volume typically depends on temperature so molarity should be specified for a given temperature.
Image of page 5
Molality (c m ) Molality of a solute, A – c mA = n soluteA /kg of solvent “moles of solute per kilogram of solvent” Moles of solute and mass of solvent are temperature independent so molality is temperature independent.
Image of page 6
Mole Fraction ( ) Mole Fraction of a solute, A A = n soluteA /n total here n total = total moles of solution. Moles are temperature independent so mole fraction is temperature independent.

Mass Percent Mass % of a solute, A – % A = (mass A /mass solution ) * 100 Mass is temperature independent so mass % is temperature independent.

Problem Concentrated sulfuric acid has a density of 1.84 g/mL and is 95% by weight H 2 SO 4 . What are the molality and molarity of this solution?
Image of page 13
Solubility If a solute is soluble in a solvent at any composition. The solute and solvent are said to be miscible . If a solute is not soluble in a solvent at any composition. The solute is said to be insoluble in that solvent.
