How do we describe the solution behaviour of #PbCl_2(aq)#?
Lead(II) chloride is very insoluble in aqueous solution. The filtrate is saturated with respect to
A saturated solution is a solution in which the concentration of the solute is equal to THAT WHICH WOULD BE IN EQUILIBRIUM WITH UNDISSOLVED SOLUTE:
The supernatant solution (the solution that lies atop undissolved solute) is said to be saturated with respect to lead chloride. Normally, a temperature is specified because a hot solution can usually hold more solute than a cold one.
AS for any equilibrium, we can express the reaction in terms of an equilibrium constant:
I acknowledge that I have gone on a long time about nothing to the power of less. The important definition is the following:
A saturated solution is a solution in which the concentration of the solute is equal to THAT WHICH WOULD BE IN EQUILIBRIUM WITH UNDISSOLVED SOLUTE.
An examiner would be quite justified in rejecting a definition of saturated solution as a solution in which the solvent holds all the solute that it can .
