The term saturated solution is used in chemistry to define a solution in which no more solute can be dissolved in the solvent. It is understood that saturation of the solution has been achieved when any additional substance that is added results in a solid precipitate or is let off as a gas.
There are many different factors that can affect whether something is a saturated solution. For example, saturation is affected by:
Ways to make a saturated solution include:
Things that are insoluble in water cannot create the saturated solutions. For example, pepper and sand can not be dissolved in water and therefore cannot create a saturated solution.
However, now you have seen some examples of different ways that a saturated solution can be created and different kinds of saturated solutions.
