Concentration

This Concentration interactive also includes:

When no more solute can be dissolved into a solvent, the solution has reached saturation. The interactive simulation allows learners to manipulate a solution in order to measure its concentration. The amount of solvent, the amount and type of solutes, and evaporation may all be changed in order to determine the affects of these changes on concentrations of a solution.

Instructional Ideas

  • Use this as a demonstration to show how increasing the amount of solute increases the concentration of a solution and vice versa
Classroom Considerations

  • Teachers can register for a free account to access related lessons/activities/teacher tips/video primers
  • Simulation best fits elementary and middle school science scholars
Pros

  • Uses high-quality graphics
  • Simulation is easy to manipulate for individuals of all levels
Cons

  • Adding solid solute to the solution is challenging and does not always work
