Dr. Heiny: (Standard 06) Solutions

solution A homogeneous mixture.
solute A substance dissolved in a solvent to form a solution.
solvent The dissolving medium in a solution.
molarity A measure of concentration in which the number of moles of solute in liters of solution (moles per liter).
solubility The amount of a substance that dissolves in a given volume of solvent or solution at a given temperature.
aqueous solutions Solutions with water as the solvent.
insoluble Does not dissolve in the solvent
saturated A solution contains as much solute as will dissolve at room temperature.
unsaturated A solution that has not reached the limit of solute that will dissolve in it.
supersaturated A solution that contains more dissolved solid than a saturated solution will hold at that temperature. This is a very unstable solution.
concentrated A large amount of solute is dissolved in a solution.
dilute A relatively small amount of solute is dissolved in a solution.
dilution The process of adding more solvent to a solution.
miscible "able to be mixed"
osmosis the process by which a solvent will flow through a semipermeable membrane from an area of low concentration to an area of high concentration
colloid a suspension that generally has particles between 1 nm and 1 micometer in length in a solid, liquid, or gas
Brownian motion the constant motion of colloid particles caused by impacts from solvent molecules
