A solution is always a liquid. Comment.


The solution is usually a liquid, but not always. It might also include a mixture of two solids like in alloys, and a mixture of gases, such as air.


A solution is a homogeneous mixture of two or more components in which the particle size is smaller than 1 nm.

Types of Solution

Depending upon the physical states of solute and solvent, we can classify solutions into nine different types.

S.No Types of Solution Solute Solvent Examples
1 Solid-solid solid solid Alloys like brass, bronze etc.
2 Solid-liquid solid liquid The solution of sugar, salt etc in water.
3 Solid-gas solid gas Sublimation of substances like iodine, camphor etc into the air.
4 Liquid-solid liquid solid Hydrated salts, mercury in amalgamated zinc, etc.
5 Liquid-liquid liquid liquid Alcohol in water, benzene in toluene
6 Liquid-gas liquid gas Aerosol, water vapour in the air.
7 Gas-solid gas solid Hydrogen absorbed in palladium
