My solubility project

by alexander ramsochit

Purpose and Procedure

The purpose of this experiment was to test four different substances in water to see if they were soluble. A substance is soluble if the water is clear and the substance disappears.


Step 1: Pour the baking soda into the cup of water.

Step 2: Take a picture of the baking soda in the water.

Step 3: Stir the cup for 2 minutes.

Step 4: Observe the cup to see if the water was clear and the substance were dissolved.

Step 5: Repeat steps 1-4 for the powdered, table salt and flour.


When I added the baking soda, table salt and powdered sugar to the water they all dissolved. I know that they dissolved because the water was clear and I could not see the substances. When I added the flour to the water it did not dissolve. I know that it did not dissolve because the water was cloudy and there was flour still on the bottom of the cup.
