dissolve, we say the water has become saturated. The point at which the water becomes saturated with a substance indicates the solubility of that substance in water. By performing experiments with different substances such as salt (NaCl), sodium nitrate, and potassium nitrate KNO 3 , scientists learned that these substances have different solubilities in water. Creating a solubility curve of KNO 3 and NH 4 Cl Temperature (°C) Solubility of KNO 3 (per 100 g H 2 0) Solubility of NH 4 Cl (per 100 g H 2 0) 0 14 28 20 34 38 40 62 47 60 105 57 70 134 63 1. Create a graph with the solubility line of KNO 3 , and the solubility line of NH 4 Cl. Temperature is your independent variable . On the y-axis, write Grams of solute/100 grams of H 2 O

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
