The solubility of potassium chloride in water is 62 at 310 K. Calculate the mass of the salt needed to produce a saturated solution in 50g of water at the same temperature. What will happen if the temperature of the solution is increased to 415 k?

Expert Answer:

Dear student
If  solubility of potassium chloride in water is 62g at 310 K then 31 gm of salt is needed to produce a saturated solution in 50g of water at the same temperature
If we increase the temperature solubility increases hence the solution will become unsaturated and more of salt can be dissolved at 415 K
