Solutions (The Chemistry Kind)

Solutions contain a solvent and one or more solutes. The concentration is the quantity of solute in a given amount of solution. Concentrations are important when considering colligative properties, which depend on the number of solute particles present, not on their identities. Freezing point depression, boiling point elevation, and osmotic pressure are examples of colligative properties.

The Problems You’ll Work On

In this chapter, you work with solutions in the following ways:

check.png Identifying solution components

check.png Calculating small concentrations (ppt, ppm, ppb)

check.png Diluting solutions

check.png Finding molarity and molality

check.png Determining freezing point depression and boiling point elevation

check.png Finding osmotic pressure

Note: For reference, you can find the periodic table in the Appendix.

What to Watch Out For

Remember the following when working on solutions:
