Young scholars investigate factors affecting the rate of solubility. In this rate of solubility lesson plan, students experiment by crushing, heating and cooling solutes and solvents to see how the solubility is affected. For each situation, young scholars record the time it takes for each solute to dissolve.
Chemistry learners will be able to explain solid and gas solubility concepts after viewing this slide show. The presentation is organized and attractive. It will serve as a tremendous support to your lecture. Follow it with a hands-on laboratory activity in which young chemists create saturated solutions at different temperatures.
Sal uses the substances, salt, and water to illustrate solubility of a substance. We all know that salt will eventually dissolve in water, but if the temperature is increased, that process happens much more quickly. He explains why this is true by looking at the molecular structure of the substances, and explaining what happens to those structures when temperature is increased.
Practically everything you ever wanted to teach about acids, bases, and solutions can be found in these 158 slides! This A+ PowerPoint examines in-depth the components of a solution and the step-by-step process of dissolving. It examines the components of solubility, ionization, and dissociation. More information is available than can be summarized here. An added bonus is that scattered throughout the presentation are questions for evaluating viewer comprehension. This is a resource you will want to get your hands on!
Here is an attractive worksheet that walks chemistry learners through a review of aqueous solutions. There are matching, short answer, and multiple choice questions dealing with boiling and freezing points, precipitate, molality, net ionic equations, and osmotic pressure, all colligative properties. Assign it as homework to help prepare for a quiz.
In this solutions worksheet, students review the factors that determine whether a substance will dissolve in another and what influences the rate of dissolution. Students review molarity and molality. This worksheet has seventeen short answer questions and nineteen problems to solve.
In this solutions worksheet, young scholars are given details about solutions and examples of different types of solutions. They complete 12 fill in the blank sentences about solutions and match eight terms to their definitions. They answer three questions about solutions.
This sequence of increasingly difficult questions about concentration asks learners to calculate the mass or amount of a substance in a solution. The questions then tests understanding by asking for an evaluation of boiling points, vapor pressure, osmotic pressure, and freezing points of certain solutions. An excellent test of comprehension, as questions are phrased in different ways, and calculations are needed, but not presented as such.
This is an apt assignment for chemistry takers that are studying ionic solutions. Eight questions require problem solving and critical thinking to answer. The first question instructs learners to use a table in the textbook, but you can provide a similar table or just have learners skip that question.
Eleventh graders work with a variety of solutions to determine which combinations will create a precipitate when mixed with another. They complete a chart with their predictions and results. When students finish the lab, they discuss the results and their successes and failures in predicting the precipitates.
Step-by-step laboratory instructions are listed so that chemistry explorers can consider the solubility of potassium nitrate. They combine their results with those of other lab groups and then graph the data to display the solubility curve. Teacher's notes and technician's notes are provided to make the planning and laboratory set-up run smoothly.
The solubility of a variety of ionic compounds in water is charted for your young chemists. There are no problems to solve or questions to answer. Use this handout when teaching solubility to help learners make connections between cations and anions and discover if there are any patterns.
