Worksheet on Solution

A homogenous mixture composed of only one phase is known as solution. A solute is dissolved in another substance, which is known as solvent. The solvent takes part in dissolving.

Solubility is defined as the ability of a compound to dissolve another compound.  The physical properties of the compound change when another compound is added to it.
