Chapter 5 Class 6 - Separation of Substances

What is the effect of temperature on a saturated solution?


Answer :

1. When a saturated solution is heated to a higher temperature, then it becomes unsaturated because the solubility of the solute increases with increase in temperature of the solution.


2. When a saturated solution is cooled to a lower temperature, then some of the dissolved solute separates out in the form of solid crystal because the solubility of solute decreases on cooling the solution.
