Solution

  • A solution is a mixture of two or more types of homologous substances where the particle size is less than 1 nm.
  • A solution consists of two parts: A solute that is present in fewer amounts and a solvent that is present in a large amount.
  • An example of a solution where the solvent is liquid but the solute is solid is salt or sugar solution.
  • An example of a solution where the solvent is liquid but the solute is liquid is alcohol in water.
  • An example of a solution where the solvent is liquid but the solute is gas is carbon dioxide in water.
  • An example of a solid solution where both the solvent and solute are solid is brass which is an alloy.
  • An example of a gaseous solution where both the solvent and solute are gas is air which is a mixture of gas.

Therefore, the statement “A solution is always a liquid.” is incorrect.
