Solute: (salt) A substance that is dissolved in another substance, thus forming a solution. Quiz Review Saturation Saturation When your solvent is unable to dissolve anymore solute it has reached its saturation point. Quiz Review Solubility Concentration Simply defined, it is a measure of how much solute will dissolve into the solvent Quiz Review Concentration Mass = 0.3g Volume = 5.0cm3 0.3g = 0.060g/cm3 5.0cm3 0.060 x 100 = 6 Answer = 6g/100 cm3 Quiz Review Acid rain Sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxide emissions from power plants form acids in the atmosphere that fall to earth as rain, fog or snow. Mixture (Smoke and Fog) is known as SMOG This acid precipitation (known as "acid rain") is often carried hundreds of miles by the wind. Acid rain damages forests and causes lakes and streams to become acidic, killing the fish. Acid rain also damages buildings and historical monuments. Quiz Review Solubility Most people get their drinking water from wells, rivers, or lakes. Water was once rain or snow, that traveled great distances through the air, over rocks and land through soil dissolving many substances along the way. In addition to dissolving minerals, drinking water may contain fertilizers, pesticides, and other substances made by man.
