Water and Solution

Water is the most abundant substance on earth.


Like any other substances, water has its own
unique characteristics.

Physical Characteristics of water


Effects of impurities on the physical
characteristics of water

5.1 Physical Characteristics of Water

A. Physical Characteristics of Water

1. Water can exist in three states:

a. Solid

b. Liquid

c. Gas

5.1 Physical Characteristics of Water

2. At room temperature, pure water is a


a. colourless,
b. odourless and
c. tasteless.

3. Water can change from one state to another.


4. The changes in the state of water occur at specific temperature.
5. The temperature of a substances remains constant, that is it
does not rise or
drop, during the change of state.
6. The density of water is 1 g per cm3. 1 cm3 of water has a mass
of 1 gram.
For example, 50 cm3 of water has a mass of 50 g.
7. Water is a poor conductor of heat

The relationship between the freezing and


boiling points of
water and the Kinetic Theory
1. When water is cooled, the particles lose kinetic energy (heat
is released). The particles move more slowly.
2. At freezing point, liquid particles cannot move freely
anymore.
3. Liquid particles are pulled together by strong forces of
attraction between particles.
4. This is why solid particles cannot move freely. A liquid
changes into a solid at freezing point.
5. When heat energy is supplied to a liquid, the liquid particles
obtain a lot of
kinetic energy and they vibrate faster.
6. At boiling point, the energy obtained enables the liquid
particles to
overcome and break the forces of attraction
between the particles.
7. Boiling is the physical process in which water changes into
steam.
8. Liquid particles are feed and change into gas at boiling point

5.1 Physical Characteristics of Water

Freezing Point of Water

liquid
solid
1.Water changes from liquid to solid at its freezing
point.
Freezing point of water is the temperature at
which water freezes into ice.

5.1 Physical Characteristics of Water

2. The freezing point of pure water is 0oC.

3. The temperature remains constant at 0oC until water


freezes completely.

5.1 Physical Characteristics of Water

When the temperature drops, the water


particles move slower.

Therefore, the forces of attraction among the


particles grow stronger.

At 0 oC, the forces of attraction are so great


that the water particles are held in fixed

5.1 Physical Characteristics of Water

Boiling Point of Water

liquid
gases
1. Water boils at its boiling point.
Boiling point of water is the temperature at
which water boils and becomes steam.

5.1 Physical Characteristics of Water

2. The boiling point of pure water is 100 oC.

3. The temperature remains constant at 100 oC until


water boils completely.

5.1 Physical Characteristics of Water

When the temperature rises, the water particles


move faster and further apart.

Therefore, the forces of attraction among the


particles grow weaker.

At 100 oC, water particles move so fast that


they overcome the forces of attraction and
leave the liquids surface.

5.1 Physical Characteristics of Water

B. Effects of Impurities on the Physical


Characteristics of Water
1. Impurities in water can change the
physical characteristics of water. Sometimes
the change is noticeable and sometimes it is not.

5.1 Physical Characteristics of Water

2. Here are some examples:


Physical

5.4 Solution and Solubility

Solution and Solubility

5.4 Solution and Solubility

1. What is a solution?

A solute is the
substance that dissolves.
A solvent is the
substance that the solute
dissolves in.

5.4 Solution and Solubility

2. Depending on the amount of solutes in


solutions, there are three types of solutions.

Dilute solution
Contains a little
dissolved solute
Can dissolve a lot
more solute

Solution

Concentrated solution
Contains a lot of
dissolved solute

Saturated solution

amount of dissolved solute

All these solutions have a clear appearance

5.4 Solution and Solubility

1. What is a suspension?
A suspension is a mixture containing insoluble
substances.
2. There are many suspensions around us.
Muddy water, fruit juices, chocolate drink, blood

5.4 Solution and Solubility

1. What is solubility?
The solubility of a solute is the maximum amount of solute in
grams that will dissolve in 100 g of solvent at a given
temperature.
For example, the solubility of sodium chloride is 38 g per 100
g of water at 20 oC.
This means that you can dissolve not more than 38 g of sodium
chloride in 100 g of water at 20 oC.

5.4 Solution and Solubility

2. Factors Affecting the Solubility of a Solute


a. The nature of the solvent
b. The nature of the solute
c. The temperature of the solvent

5.4 Solution and Solubility

i. The nature of the solvent


- The solubility of a solute differs in
different solvents.
Example:
Only a little iodine can dissolve in water. Iodine can
dissolve very well in alcohol.

5.4 Solution and Solubility

ii. The nature of the solute


Different solutes have different solubility
in the same solvent.

Example:
At the same temperature, sodium chloride has a
lower solubility in water compared to copper chloride.

5.4 Solution and Solubility

1. What are the factors affecting the rate


of dissolving a solute?
a. Temperature
b. Rate of stirring
c. Size of solute particles

5.4 Solution and Solubility

i. Temperature
The higher the temperature of the solvent, the higher the
rate of dissolving.

:
We use hot water to make
tea. One reason for this is
that hot water increases
the rate of dissolving of
certain substances in the

5.4 Solution and Solubility

ii. Rate of stirring


The higher the rate of stirring, the higher the rate of
dissolving.

:
The faster you stir the
soup, the faster the salt
dissolves in it.

5.4 Solution and Solubility

iii. Size of solute particles


The smaller the size of the solute particles, the higher the
rate of dissolving.

Smaller pieces of palm


sugar can dissolve in water
faster than a big piece of
it.

5.4 Solution and Solubility

Water is a good solvent. Almost everything can dissolve in it to


produce solutions. Therefore, water is also known as the
universal solvent.
Water acts as a medium in many chemical reactions in
our body.
Water dissolves and transports many substances in our
body such as digested food and waste products.
Water dissolves cleaning agents such as soap powder,
dishwasher liquid and toilet cleaner.

5.4 Solution and Solubility

Water dissolves various substances. This enables us to


use water in cooking and making drinks.

Water is used extensively in food industry as a solvent.

Water is used to prepare traditional and modern liquid


medicines.

Farmers use water to dissolve pesticides.

5.4 Solution and Solubility

Some substances cannot dissolve in water but they can


dissolve in organic solvents.

What are organic solvents?


Alcohol

Turpentine

Acetone

5.4 Solution and Solubility

1. We use many organic solvents in various products.


To produce lacquers and varnishes
Alcohol

To produce various types of ink


To prepare iodine solution (as an antiseptic)
To produce perfume

To produce paints
To remove paint stains
Turpentine
To produce nail polish

5.4 Solution and Solubility

2. Organic solvents are very useful to us.

a. They are volatile. Therefore, products such as


paints, lacquers,
varnishes and inks become dry in a
short period of time.
b. They can dissolve many solutes that do not dissolve
in water.
3. However, products containing organic solvents
should be
handled carefully.
a. They are flammable and should be stored away
from heat.
b. They are toxic and carcinogenic (likely to cause
cancer).

An acid is a substance that has a hydrogen


atom, which can be replaced by a metal
or ammonium.

alkaline solutions) and radioactive substances.
c. Chemical substances in agriculture such as
pesticides,
chemical fertilisers and agriculture waste (latex
and oil
palm)
d. Mud and silt caused by the construction
industries and

he effect of water pollution on living things.


1. Water pollution brings about adverse effects on
the equilibrium in nature.
2. the effects of water pollution on living things
include:
a. polluted water cannot be used for drinking or
bathing.
Polluted water causes diseases such
as skin diseases and
cholera.
b. Aquatic like such as fish, prawn will die. This
reduces the
fishermans catch and the
human food supply.
c. Aquatic life that are poisoned by chemicals
such as lead or
mercury will cause adverse
effects if eaten
