We know that solubility of a liquid is increased on heating.
My query is-
Suppose we have some normal temperature water and we keep on mixing sugar in it until it is saturated i.e. no more sugar can be mixed in it. Now we heat it to increase it's solubility and then add more sugar to mix in it until the mixture once again becomes saturated. Now, what will happen when water is cooled down? Will the normal temperature water show signs of low solubility as it showed earlier? How can excess sugar that was dissolved in water because of increased temperature remain dissolved in the water when it is cooled down?
