Saturated Solution

Unsaturated Solution

Solution contains the maximum amount of dissolved solute

Solution contains less than maximum amount of dissolved solute

No more solute can be added without raising the temperature

More solute can be added without raising the temperature

Example: 40 gm of salt in 100 gm of water

4 gm remains undissolved

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

Example: 30 gm of salt in 100 gm of water

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

 

 

Note : A supersaturated solution contains more than the maximum amount of solute that can be dissolved at that temperature. It is unstable and the solute will usually begin to crystallize, especially if disturbed.
