Unformatted text preview: the tube in an ice bath and added one crystal of sodium thiosulfate. After adding a crystal the solution began to get warmer which meant energy was being released. This solution was supersaturated because it produced a large amount of crystalline solid when a small additional amount of solute was added. From this lab I learnt the difference between saturated, supersaturated, and unsaturated solutions by observing a supersaturated solution. We also learned that to create a supersaturated solution you must create the proper conditions, which means to heat it up. In this lab I did not experience any errors....
