If a substance dissolves in a liquid, it is called a solute and the liquid is called the solvent. The resulting mixture is called a solution.
Solute + Solvent = Solution
|Solute||Solid which dissolves|
|Solvent||Liquid which does the dissolving|
|Solution||Solute + solvent|
|Saturated solution||A solution which will dissolve no more solute.|
|Soluble substance||A substance that will dissolve in a solvent.|
|Insoluble substance||A substance that will not dissolve in a solvent|
