1. Deliquescent substances: Calcium chloride
2. Hygroscopic substances: Conc Sulphuric acid, Copper sulphate penta hydrate, Silica gel and Gypsum salt.

Question 1.
Write notes on
(i) saturated solution
(ii) unsaturated solution
(i) Saturated solution : A solution in which no more solute can be dissolved in a definite amount of the solvent at a given temperature is called saturated solution.
Eg: 36 g of sodium chloride in 100 g of water at 25°C forms saturated solution.

(ii) Unsaturated solution : Unsaturated solution is one that contains less solute than that of the saturated solution at a given temperature.
Eg: 10 g or 20 g or 30 g of Sodium chloride in 100 g of water at 25°C forms an unsaturated solution.

Question 2.
Write notes on various factors affecting solubility.
Factors affecting solubility: There are three main factors which govern the solubility of the solute. They are
(i) Nature of the solute and solvent
(ii) Temperature
(iii) Pressure

(i) Nature of the solute and solvent: The nature of the solute and solvent plays an important role insolubility. Although water dissolves an enormous variety of substances, both ionic and covalent, it does not dissolve everything. The phrase that scientists often use when predicting solubility is “like dissolves like.” This expression means that dissolving occurs when similarities exist between the solvent and the solute. For example, Common salt is a polar compound and dissolves readily in polar solvent like water.

Non – polar compounds are soluble in non-polar solvents. For example, Fat dissolved in ether. But non-polar compounds, do not dissolve in polar solvents; polar compounds do not dissolve in non-polar solvents.

(ii) Effect of Temperature
The solubility of Solids in Liquid: Generally, the solubility of a solid solute in a liquid solvent increases with increase in temperature. For example, a greater amount of sugar will dissolve in warm water than in cold water.
In the endothermic process, solubility increases with increase in temperature. In the exothermic process, solubility decreases with increase in temperature.

The solubility of Gases in liquid: Solubility of gases in liquids decreases with increase in temperature. Generally, water contains dissolved oxygen. When water is boiled, the solubility of oxygen in water decreases, so oxygen escapes in the form of bubbles. Aquatic animals live more in cold regions because more amount of dissolved oxygen is present in the water of cold regions. This shows that the solubility of oxygen in water is more at low temperatures.

(iii) Effect of Pressure: Effect of pressure is observed only in the case of solubility of a gas in a liquid. When the pressure is increased, the solubility of a gas in liquid increases.
The common examples for solubility of gases in liquids are carbonated beverages, i.e. soft drinks, household cleaners containing an aqueous solution of ammonia, formalin aqueous solution of formaldehyde, etc.

Question 3.
(a) What happens when MgSO4.7H2O is heated? Write the appropriate equation.
(b) Define solubility.
(a) MgSO4.7H2O has a water of crystallization is 7. When magnesium sulphate heptahydrate crystals are gently heated, it loses seven water molecules and becomes anhydrous magnesium sulphate.

(b) Solubility: It is defined as the number of grams of a solute that can be dissolved in 100 g of a solvent to form its saturated solution at a given temperature and pressure.

Question 4.
In what way, hygroscopic substances differ from deliquescent substances.
Difference between hygroscopic and deliquescent substances is in the extent to which each material can absorb moisture. This is because both of these terms are very much related to each other and they refer to the property of observing and the retention of moisture from the air. However, they differ in the extent of absorption of moisture where hygroscopic materials absorb moisture but not to the extent the original substance dissolves in it, which is the case with deliquescence. Therefore deliquescence can be regarded as an extreme condition of hygroscopic activity.

Difference between hygroscopic substances and deliquescence

 Hygroscopic Substances Deliquescence Substances When exposed to the atmosphere at ordinary temperature, they absorb moisture and do not dissolve. When exposed to the atmospheric air at ordinary temperature, they absorb moisture and dissolve. Hygroscopic substances do not change their physical state on exposure to air. Deliquescent substances change its physical state on exposure to air. Hygroscopic substances may be amorphous solids or liquids. Deliquescent substances are crystalline solids.

Question 5.
A solution is prepared by dissolving 45 g of sugar in 180 g of water. Calculate the mass percentage of solute.
Mass of sugar (solute) = 45 g
Mass of water (solvent) = 180 g.

Question 6.
3.5 litres of ethanol is present in 15 litres of an aqueous solution of ethanol. Calculate volume per cent of the ethanol solution.
Volume of ethanol (solute) = 3.5 litre
Volume of aqueous solution = 15 litre
Volume of the solution = $$\frac{\text { Volume of the solute }}{\text { Volume of the solution }} \times 100$$
= $$\frac{3.5}{15} \times 100$$
Volume percentage = 23.33 %.

VII. HOT Questions.

Question 1.
Vinu dissolves 50 g of sugar in 250 ml of hot water, Sarath dissolves 50 g of same sugar in 250 ml of cold water. Who will get faster dissolution of sugar? and Why?
Vinu will get faster dissolution of sugar. Because Vinu dissolves 50 g of sugar in 250 ml of hot water, whereas Sarath dissolves 50 g of sugar in 250 ml of cold water. Solubility of a solid in liquid increases with increase in temperature.

Question 2.
‘A’ is a blue coloured crystalline salt. On heating, it loses a blue colour and to give ‘B’. When water is added, ‘B’ gives back to ‘A’. Identify A and B, write the equation.

• Blue coloured crystalline salt is copper sulphate pentahydrate (A)
• On heating Copper sulphate pentahydrate it loses blue colour and to give anhydrous copper sulphate (B).
• When water is added to the anhydrous copper sulphate (B) gives back to copper sulphate pentahydrate (A).

Question 3.
Will the cool drinks give more fizz at top of the hills or at the foot? Explain.
Carbonated cool drinks give more fizz at the foot hill because solubility of gases in liquid decrease with increase in temperature. At higher altitudes, the temperature is low and the dissolved CO2 will not escape as fizz, whereas at the foot hill it does.

• At 25°C, 95 g NaBr is dissolved in 100 g water to get a saturated solution.
• At 25°C, 184g Nal is dissolved in 100 g water to get a saturated solution.
• The solubility of a solute at a given solvent at a particular temperature is defined as the number of grams of solute necessary to saturate 100 g of the solvent at that temperature.
• In the above tabular column, we infer that the solubility of NaI is the highest and the solubility of NaCl is the lowest.
• All the NaCl, NaBr, Nal solution in water are called aqueous solutions.
• Depending upon the amount of the solute, the solutions are classified as a saturated and unsaturated solution.

2. 36 g NaCl in 100 g water is a saturated solution.
 Saturated Solution Unsaturated Solution 1. A solution in which no more solute can be dissolved in a definite amount of the solvent at a given temperature is called a saturated solution. 1. A solution in which the solute is lesser in the amount in the solvent is called unsaturated solution. 2. In this solution, no more solute can be dissolved. If more of solute is added, it will not dissolve to give a supersaturated solution. 2. More of solute can be dissolved to get a saturated solution.

Question 3.
Write a note on the type of solution based on the amount of solute present in a solution.
Based on the amount of solute, in the given amount of solvent, solutions are classified into the following types.
(i) Saturated solution : A solution in which no more solute can be dissolved in a definite amount of the solvent at a given temperature is called saturated solution. Eg: 36 g of sodium chloride in 100 g of water at 25°C forms saturated solution.Further addition of sodium chloride, leave it undissolved.

(ii) Unsaturated solution : Unsaturated solution is one that contains less solute than that of the saturated solution at a given temperature. Eg: 10 g or 20 g or 30 g of Sodium chloride in 100 g of water at 25°C forms an unsaturated solution.

(iii) Super saturated solution : Supersaturated solution is one that contains more solute than the saturated solution at a given temperature. Eg: 40 g of sodium chloride in 100 g of water at 25°C forms super saturated solution. This state can be achieved by altering any other conditions liken temperature, pressure. Super saturated solutions are unstable, and the solute is reappearing as crystals when the solution is disturbed.

Question 4.

VIII. HOT Questions.

Question 1.
Observe the diagram.

1. Which is a concentrated solution and why?
2. Which is dilute solution and why?

1. Flask (b) is a concentrated solution. Because (b) flask contains a large number of solute particles than (a) flask.
2. Flask (a) is a dilute solution. Because (a) flask contains a lesser number of solute particles than (b) flask.

Question 2.
Where we use the phrase – “Like dissolves Like” and explain the meaning of the phrase?
The phrase “like dissolves like” is often used for predicting solubility. This expression means that dissolving occurs when similarities exist between the solvent and the solute. For example, Common salt is a polar compound and dissolves readily in polar solvent like water.

Question 3.
Why bubbling occurs when water is boiled?
The solubility of a gas in liquid decrease with increase in temperature. Generally, water contains dissolved oxygen. When water is boiled, the solubility of oxygen in water decreases, so oxygen escapes in the form of bubbles.

Question 4.
What happens when blue vitriol is heated? Explain.
When blue vitriol (Copper sulphate pentahydrate) crystals are gently heated, it loses it five water molecules and becomes colourless anhydrous copper sulphate.

Question 1.
Take 10 g of common salt and dissolve it in 40 g of water. Find the concentration of a solution in terms of weight per cent.
Solution:
Weight percent = $$\frac{\text { Weight of the solute }}{\text { Weight of solute }+\text { Weight of solvent }} \times 100$$
$$=\frac{10}{10+40} \times 100=20 \%$$.

Question 2.
2 g of potassium sulphate was dissolved in 12.5 ml of water. On cooling, the first crystals appeared at 60°C. What is the solubility of potassium sulphate in water at 60°C? Solution. 12.5 ml of water weighs 12.5 g.
Solution:
In 12.5 g of water, the amount of potassium sulphate dissolved is 2 g.
In 1 g of water, the amount of potassium sulphate dissolved is 2 / 12.5 g.
Hence in 100 g of water, the amount of potassium sulphate dissolved is (2 × 100) / 12.5 = 16 g.
The solubility of potassium sulphate in the water at 60°C is 16 g.

Question 3.
50 g of a saturated solution of NaCl at 30°C is evaporated to dryness and 13.2 g of dry NaCl was obtained. Find the solubility of NaCl at 30°C in water.
Solution:
Mass of water in solution = 50 – 13.2 = 36.8 g
Solubility of NaCl
\begin{aligned} &=\frac{\text { Mass of } \mathrm{NaCl}}{\text { Mass of water }} \times 100 \\=& \frac{13.2}{36.8} \times 100=36 \mathrm{g} \end{aligned}

Question 4.
An empty evaporating dish weighs 20.0 g. After adding a saturated solution of NaNO3, the dish weighs 66.0 g. When evaporated to dryness, the dish with crystals weighs 42.5 g. Find the solubility of NaNO3 at 20°C.
Solution:
Weight of saturated solution of NaNO3 = (66.0 – 20.0) g = 46.0 g
Weight of crystals of NaNO3 = (41.5 – 20.0) g = 21.5 g
Weight of water in saturated solution = (46.0 – 21.5) g = 24.5 g
Solubility of NaNO3 = $$\frac{\text { Weight of NaNO }_{3} \text { crystals }}{\text { Weight of water }} \times 100$$
