Introduction About Solid and Solution :
Solutions are simply mixtures of materials, one of which is a liquid or a gas. The liquid or gas, also called a fluid because it is able to flow, serves as the “solvent”.To know more about Solid and Solution,watch Solid and Solution Video to learn more .
The other material in the solution is called the “solute”. The process of combining the solute and the solvent can also be called “dissolving” the solute in the solvent. The ability to dissolve is called “solubility”. The complete dissolution of one liquid in another liquid is called “miscibility”. An example of this would be vinegar and water. When the opposite occurs, the substances are called “immiscible” – an example is oil and water. Mixtures can have materials, which are not evenly distributed. For instance, if you try to combine coffee and sugar, you cannot actually be sure that the molecules of sugar are evenly distributed in between the molecules of coffee. In a solution, this is not so. Instead, the molecules are evenly distributed. For example, every 1 molecule of coffee would be surrounded by 3 molecules of sugar. The ratio can be 1 molecule to 1 molecule or 1:4 but the whole point is that the ratio is true for every molecule in the solution. This arrangement is called homogeneity. Therefore, a solution is also called a homogenous system. To know more about Solid and Solution,watch Solid and Solution Video to learn more .
