Solubility Virtual Lab
Objective:
Today you will explore the effect of temperature and polarity on solubility of salt
in water.
Hypothesis:
Create a hypothesis about how either polarity or temperature affect solubility.
Procedure:
1. Go onto the Puffin App and then go to Mrs. Simon’s webpage.
2. Once on her webpage, click on Helpful and Fun Links and then go to the
Solubility Virtual Lab.
3. When on the website, pick a salt compound. Choose KCL.
4. After you choose, then find how many grams of that salt compound you
can put in the cup of water at 0 degrees C, 20 degrees C, 60 degrees C
and 100 degrees C until it becomes saturated. You can tell the solution is
saturated when undissolved compound appears at the bottom of the
beaker.
6. Repeat steps 3-5 with NaNo3
7. Create a line graph of your results and then answer the questions.

Data Analysis:
Create a line graph to represent the data collected in the virtual solubility lab.
Be sure to label your x and y axis, give your graph a title, and include a key.
“Temperature (C)” should be the x axis and “Amount Dissolved (g)” should be
the y axis.
1. What effect does temperature have on solubility?

Conclusion:
Write a conclusion for the virtual lab you just performed. You might have to
research on the iPad to figure out WHY the lab results came out the way they
did.
