Problem: What happens in the solutions process?

FREE Expert Solution

We’re asked to explain what happens in the solution process.


Solutions are homogeneous mixtures that result from the dissolving of a solute in a solvent.


In the theory of “likes” dissolving “likes”, the solvent can only completely dissolve the solute if they share similar polarity or intermolecular force.


In the dissolving process, the solution must overcome certain attractions.

  • The solute is highly attracted to the solute (solute-solute)
