Can soluble substances dissolve in certain solvents?

Certain substances are soluble in all proportions with a given solvent, such as ethanol in water. Under various conditions, the equilibrium solubility can be exceeded to give a so-called supersaturated solution, which is metastable. The solvent is often a solid, which can be a pure substance or a mixture.

Does soluble mean dissolve?

When scientists claim that a substance is soluble, they mean that it can be dissolved, most commonly in water. For example, sodium chloride (ordinary table salt) is soluble in water.

Do all substances dissolve every solvent?

Earlier we learned that a homogeneous mixture of two or more substances is called a solution. In this example benzene is the solvent and napthalene is the solute. Solutes dissolved in water (solvent) are called aqueous solutions. Not all substances are soluble in water.

Which compound is not soluble?

Soluble Compounds Exceptions
Almost all salts of of Na+, K+ and NH4+
All salts of Cl-, Br- and I- Halides of Ag+, Hg2 + and Pb2+
Compounds containing F- Flourides of Mg 2+, Ca 2+, Sr 2+, Ba 2+, Pb 2+
Salts of nitrate, NO -3, Chlorate, ClO3 – perchlorate, ClO4 – acetate, CH3CO2 –

What makes a compound soluble?

Definition of Solubility The solubility of a substance fundamentally depends on the solvent used, as well as temperature and pressure. The solubility of a substance in a particular solvent is measured by the concentration of the saturated solution. The term “insoluble” is often applied to poorly soluble compounds.

Is baso3 soluble?

It can also be formed by treating barium with sulfurous acid….Barium sulfite.

Is BAOH soluble in water?

Be(OH)2 and Mg(OH)2 are almost insoluble, Ca(OH)2 is sparingly soluble while Sr(OH)2 and Ba(OH)2 are fairly soluble. This is due to increase in size of the cation and decrease in their lattice energies on moving down the group.
