Solutions and Properties of Water

Author: Christene Lohse

(10) Science concepts. The student understands and can apply the factors that influence the behavior of
solutions. The student is expected to: 
   (A) describe the unique role of water in chemical and biological systems; 
   (B) develop and use general rules regarding solubility through investigations with aqueous solutions; 
   (C) calculate the concentration of solutions in units of molarity; 
   (D) use molarity to calculate the dilutions of solutions; 
   (E) distinguish between types of solutions such as electrolytes and nonelectrolytes and unsaturated,
saturated, and supersaturated solutions; 
   (F) investigate factors that influence solubilities and rates of dissolution such as temperature, agitation,
and surface area; 
   (G) define acids and bases and distinguish between Arrhenius and Bronsted-Lowery definitions and
predict products in acid base reactions that form water; 
   (H) understand and differentiate among acid-base reactions, precipitation reactions, and oxidation-
reduction reactions;
