Garry McKay, a 49 year old male from Melbourne asks on November 6, 2007,I've a question about solublity, water, and cyclohexanone. Water has a certain solubility in cyclohexanone, and cyclohexanone has a certain (different) solubility in water. If you have a mix of water and cyclohexanone in a jar so that you have both phases present in the jar, and you add salt to the water the solubility of the cyclohexanone in the water will decrease. Does the amount of water in the cyclohexanone phase also decrease?
