Will a solution made by adding 9,0 g #NH_4Cl# to 20 g of #H_2O# be saturated or unsaturated at 50 degrees C?

This mass in this volume does not constitute a saturated solution.


A saturated solution is a solution whose concentration is equal to the concentration it would have if it were in equilibrium with undissolved solute.

Since ammonium chloride is very soluble in water over a range of temperatures, the described solution is unsaturated.
