# How do we find densities and solubilities?

Jun 12, 2017

How else but by experiment and measurement........?

#### Explanation:

Now these days we are lucky. Densities and solubilities are extensively quoted on the web.

And $\text{density,}$ $\rho$ $=$ $\text{Mass"/"Volume}$,

And $\text{concentration,}$ $=$ $\text{Moles of solute"/"Volume of solution}$

At least for aqueous solutions, the volume does not change substantially upon dissolution of a solute.

Common solubilities, and solution densities are extensively tabulated in the CRC handbook, but again this is an experimental proposition.
