Answer:

You could have asked this question more clearly.....

Explanation:

Generally, we want solubility in terms of #mol*L^-1#....i.e.

#"Moles of solute"/"Volume of solution"#

And here we got (I think)....

#((35.18*g)/(101.10*g*mol^-1))/(23.41*mLxx10^-3*L*mL^-1)=14.9*mol*L^-1#

Potassium nitrate is exceptionally soluble in water, and here I don't think you even have a saturated solution. What does #"saturated"# mean in this context?
