What is Unsaturated solution?

A solution in which more solute can be dissolved without raising temperature is called unsaturated solution.

That is, if the amount of solute contained in a solution is less than the saturation level , it is called an unsaturated solution.

Example

Solubility of Salt is 36gm (at 20 degree celsius)

If we mix 30 gm of salt in 100 gm of water, it is an unsaturated solution.

We can stil mix 6 grams more of salt without increasing the temperature
