What is the difference between an unsaturated solution and a saturated solution?
Well the difference is usually poorly appreciated at undergraduate level........
A saturated solution is a solution that contains the same amount of solute that would be in equilibrium with UNDISSOLVED solute.
As well as a solute, and a solvent, a temperature is usually specified because a hot solution can generally dissolve more solute than a cold one.
And an unsaturated solution is a solution that holds an amount of solute that is LESS than the amount that would be in equilibrium with undissolved solute.

If you are unclear as to my emphasis, come again, because this is a very important definition to understand.
And for once I found the relevant links...........
