Solving Dissolving

Solving Dissolving introduces and explains the concept of dissolving. Taking off from the familiar experience of dissolving sugar in water, the book provides evidence that the sugar is still there and describes what the remaining sugar might look like if we could see the tiny sugar particles. Students learn about the role of temperature in solubility; that some substances are more soluble in water than others while other substances are not soluble in water at all; the difference between melting and dissolving; and how dissolving is useful to cooks, scientists, and inventors. This book enables students to learn about more dissolving than is directly observable.
