Abstract: Quantitative experiments on supersaturated solutions are presented. They serve to introduce topics such as the solubility curve and irreversible phase transitions. Experimental results are analyzed with the aid of Hess law. This kind of experiments, which, in the present case employed sodium acetate trihydrate, may be chosen as a student's project in experimental thermodynamics.
