Introduction and Summary

Solubility

Concentration  -  The amount of solute dissolved in a given amount of solvent.
Dissolve  -  To become a part of a solution.
Enthalpy of Solution  -  The amount of heat absorbed upon the formation of a solution by a solute and a solvent.
Entropy of Solution  -  The amount of disorder created by the formation of a solution by a solute and a solvent.
Henry's Law  -  The solubility of a gas in a solvent is proportional to the pressure of the gas above the solvent.
Le Chatelier's Principle  -  A system at equilibrium will react to a change by opposing that change.
Non-polar  -  A molecule with a low net dipole.
Polar  -  A molecule with a large net dipole.
Solubility  -  The amount of a particular solute that can dissolve in a given amount of a particular solvent. Solubilities are generally listed in g / L.
Solute  -  A minor component of a solution.
Solution  -  A homogeneous mixture.
Solvent  -  The major component of a solution.
