Equilibrium is only found in a saturated solution, where the dissolved species and the undissolved species are in equilibrium with each other. In a dilute solution there is nothing that is undissolved, and so there is no equilibrium, and by definition a supersaturated solution is out of equilibrium and essentially has too much stuff dissolved in it (it will eventually return to equilibrium and some of the dissolved material will precipitate out).
A saturated solution has a solute that is at its maximum concentration. At this point, no more solute can be dissolved at the current temperature. The dissolved and undissolved solutes are at equilibrium in the saturated solution.
no, we cannot dissolve more sugar in saturated solution and if we add more sugar so there is a dynamic equilibrium between the dissolved and undissolved sugar
A salt water solution is considered saturated when no more salt can be dissolved in the water and there is no undissolved salt in the solution; so it is at the highest capacity of salt that can be dissolved in the amount of water present.
the amount of solute that has dissolved is equal to the amount of solute that has not dissolved yet
Assuming that all of the sugar that could be dissolved, is dissolved at that temperature and pressure, it would be a super saturated solution.
When some of the material being dissolved remains it's called a saturated solution
There is at least one phase in every solution because the solute has been completely dissolved into solution. If there is still remaining solute, then the solution has two phases, one in which the solute is completely dissolved and the other phase having undissolved solute.
A solute is dissolved in the solution, so if for example you are talking about sugar and water, the white sugar is invisible and the water is clear. So when you filter the water/sugar solution everything filters through the filter paper. If the solution is saturated, this means that the water has dissolved as much as possible so there will be some sugar remaining in the solution. If this is to be filtered then the undissolved sugar will remain in the filter paper, separating the sugar/water solution from the undissolved sugar.
A solution describes when a species is dissolved in water. You have a mixture.
solution are of three types.true,colloidal and suspension.suspension solution is the solution which does not allow light to pass through.does not scatter light. 'in this solution the particles are not completely dissolved and they can be seen through our naked eye'.they have undissolved small particles.example:chalk powder in water
a supersaturated solution
I believe the term is insoluble.
If a solution is saturated, all of the substance is dissolved in the liquid. If a solution is unsaturated, there is still some solute (the solid) that has not been dissolved. Finally, if a solution is supersaturated, the solution has more solute dissolved than usual (usually results from a temperature increase), the word homogeneous best describes the true solution.
