Sugar water is an example of a solid-liquid solution. Sugar, a solid, is the solute; water, a liquid, is the solvent. Dissolving the solid in the liquid creates the solution. More »

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 »

Solutions are formed when a solute is dissolved in a solvent. The type of chemicals and compounds that act as the solute and solvent can vary greatly. As long as the mixture is homogeneous, it can be classified as a solu... More »

Sugar dissolving in water is a physical change and not a chemical one. Chemical changes only occur when new substances form. Dissolving sugar in water does not cause a chemical reaction to take place. More »

Sugar water freezes faster than salt water, because salt has more molecules than sugar. Normally, water freezes at 32°F, however, when a substance is added to the water, it lowers its freezing point. This is not because ... More »

Sugar dissolves in water because both substances are polar substances. Water dissolves the majority of substances that are polar or ionic. The fact that sugar dissolves in water is unusual because most molecular compound... More » Science Chemistry Solutions & Mixtures

An example of a neutral solution is either a sodium chloride solution or a sugar solution. A neutral solution has a pH equal to 7. Water is another common substance that is neutral on the pH scale. More »
