Chapter 12: Solutions
solution: a homogenous mixture of two or more substances or components
The majority component is typically called the solvent and the minority component
is called the solvent.
Thirsty solutions are those that have the tendency toward mixing (ex: salt water)
Aqueous solutions: water is the solvent, and a solid, liquid, or gas is the solute
Solubility: the amount of the substance that will dissolve in a given amount of
solvent
Entropy: the measure of energy randomization or energy dispersal in a system.
The mixture of two gases has greater energy dispersal, or entropy, than the
separated components
Intermolecular forces:
Miscible: The ability of two or more substances to be soluble in each other in all
proportions.
Like dissolves like: polar solvents tend to dissolve many polar or ionic solutes
and non-polar solvents tend to dissolve many non-polar solutes.
Enthalpy of solution ( h) is the sum of the changes in enthalpy for each step in a
reaction

Heat of hydration ( hydration): hsolvent + h mix can be combined into a single
term
If hsolute < h hydration, the process is exothermic
If hsolute > h hydration, the process is endothermic
If hsolute = h hydration, the process is neither, resulting in very minimal
temperature change
Dynamic Equilibrium: The point at which the rate of the reverse reaction or
process equals the rate of the forward reaction or process
Saturated solution: a solution in which the dissolved solute is in dynamic
equilibrium with the solid solute
Unsaturated solution: a solution containing less than the equilibrium amount of
solute
Supersaturated solution: a solution containing more than the equilibrium amount
of solute. Such solutions are unstable and the excess solute normally precipitates out
of the solution
A common way to purify a solid is a technique called recrystillization: enough solid
is added to water to create a saturated solution at an elevated temperature. As is
cools, it becomes supersaturated and the excess solid precipitates out of solution and
forms crystals as it comes out.
The solubility of gases in liquids decreases with increasing temperature
Henrys Law: quantifying the solubility of gases with increasing pressure
S gas is the solubility of the gas (usually in M), kh is a constant of proportionality
(called Henrys law constant), and Pgas is the partial pressure of the gas (usually in
atm)

OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!

Balancing social life With academics can be difficult, that is why I'm so glad that OneClass is out there where I can find the top notes for all of my classes. Now I can be the all-star student I want to be.
