Asked Jan 9, 2020

Once you choose the appropriate solvent, how much solvent should you add to your sample to dissolve? What do you think could happen if you add too much solvent?  What could be a reason for your sample not dissolving in the appropriate solvent?


Expert Answer

Step 1

A solution can be defined as the mixture that consists of two components; solute and solvent. Here solute is the component that is present in less amount whereas solvent is found in more amount. For example in salt solution salt is solute and water is a solvent.

Step 2

If a solute is completely soluble in the solvent, it forms a true solution. To dissolve in a solvent, the solute molecules must have some intermolecular interactions with...
