Salt Solutions

Figure 3.03. Salt solutions (brines) made by mixing various proportions of halite (NaCl) and water. The weight percent NaCl for the mixture in each vial is listed on the glass vial. Masses of NaCl and H2O in each 6 gram mixture are listed in Table 01. Notice that undissolved halite crystals remain on the bottom of the bottles for some solutions, which are saturated with halite.
