# 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?

Jul 22, 2016

#### Answer:

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

#### Explanation:

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.
