Answer:

My word...

Explanation:

Most alkali metal salts are soluble in aqueous solution. Sulfates TEND to be soluble (there are some exceptions that have to be LEARNED).

This site quotes an aqueous solubility of #140*g*L^-1# at standard temperature.

Answer:

Yes, #Na_2SO_4# is soluble in water.

Explanation:

To figure out whether a compound is soluble in water, refer to the following list of solubility rules. This set of rules is very important and should be memorized.

Higher number rules supersede. #Na_2SO_4# contains #Na^+# ions, and alkali metal ions are soluble, according to rule no. 2. So, we know that sodium sulfate is soluble.
