Achemist dissolved crystals of an unknown substance into water at room temperature. he found that 33 g of the substance can be dissolved into 100 ml of water. what property of the unknown substance was the chemist most likely investigating? its solubility its rate of dissolution its chemical reaction to water its reaction to temperature changes
A. Its Solubility
He must be investigating its solubility in water.
Solubility is the maximum amount of a substance that can be dissolved in 100mL or 100g of water at a given temperature.
So if a chemist dissolves some amount of a crystal in 100mL then it shows that is he investigating the solubility.
The rate of dissolution will be measured only if time is also noted.
To understand the reaction one has to do some other test after reaction.
To note the temperature change the chemist must use thermometer.
When a chemist is dissolving crystal of unknown substance it means the chemist is checking the solubility of substance in the water.
As the chemist not measuring the temperature so he is not determining anything related to enthalpy, boiling point, melting point etc.
When we dissolve a particular amount of substance (to form saturated solution) in a particular volume of solvent it means we are checking it solubility.
Explanation : When the chemist dissolved the unknown crystals into the water he measured the change before and after dissolution. He was studying the solubility of that unknown substance as per his observation records,which shows he noted the changes for understanding the solubility nature of the crystals.
smooth muscle is composed of involuntary muscles found within the walls of organs and structures such as the esophagus, stomach, intestines, and blood vessels. those muscles push materials like food or blood through organs. unlike skeletal muscle, smooth muscle can never be under your control.
