Suppose that I have a substance X dissolved in water. I then add a substance Y to the solution. Substance Y has a higher solubility in water than substance X, and more than enough of substance Y is added to saturate the water. Will substance X come out of solution? Why or why not? For example, let's have X be sodium chloride and Y be sucrose.
