WHAT IS CONCENTRATION IN CHEMISTRY?  

 

Concentration is the amount of solute added to a solution. Chemistry is not always related to chemist laboratories; we often deal with chemistry in our daily lives. Especially in the kitchen, reactions and process take place which directs to chemistry logics. 

 

The process of adding solute to a given solution is known as Concentration, the more the amount of solute or substance, the greater the concentration. It is directly proportional to the strength of a solution. 

 

Concentration has two types: 

  1. Saturated Solution 
  1. Unsaturated Solution 

 

  • A Solution to which we cannot add furthermore solute at a particular temperature is ‘Saturated Solution.’ 
  • A solution to which increased solute can be added and dissolved at the same temperature is known as an ‘Unsaturated Solution.’ 

Mathematically, 

                                 Concentration =     

To understand the concept of Concentration in chemistry, let us take an example of lemon juice. For this, you need to perform an experiment in which you need the following items. 

  • Salt 
  • Water 
  • A Bowl or a glass 
  •  

Take a half glass of water and dissolve two spoons of common salt in it. Here, water acts as a solvent and we take Salt as a solute. On drinking the water, you will see that the taste is stronger because we added more amount of lemon drops into only a half glass of water. 

 

Simply, we can say the solution is More Concentrated if more solute is added, whereas on mixing a little amount the solution we get will be ‘Dilute.’
