Examples of solids in gas solutions include hydrogen in platinum and sulfur vapor in air. In chemistry and physics, there are three states of matter, which are solid, liquid and gas. From these states seven different typ... More »

Carbonated water, the water-sugar solution used for making rock candy and rain clouds are all examples of supersaturated solutions. Supersaturated solutions consist of an over-abundance of solvents in liquids or gases co... More » Science Chemistry Solutions & Mixtures

A solute is a substance which is dissolved in a solvent to make a solution; a common example is sugar. Sugar added to water, which is the solvent in this case, dissolves into sugar water. More »

A solute is the smaller part of a solution, which in many cases is said to have been dissolved by the solvent. A solution is any mixture that is homogeneous at a molecular level, which means that any given volume of the ... More »

The two parts of a solution are the solvent and the solute. When the two parts combine to make a solution, the properties of the solution differ from the properties of the two individual parts. More »

A solvent is a substance that dissolves a solute in the formation of a solution, and any solvent other than water is considered a non-aqueous solvent. Some common examples include ether, alcohol, benzene, disulphide, car... More »
